Czechoslovakian unlabelled cello with SKB case
We tend to think of Germany as one of the two historic hubs of European violin-family manufacture, along with France, but Bohemia, which became part of Czechoslovakia and later the Czech Republic, also played an important role. By the 1890’s, the principal violin-making town of Schönbach was producing upwards of 150,000 violins a year. This cello is typical of middle-grade Czechoslovakian student range instruments of the early-mid twentieth century, with its solid-wood European spruce and maple belly and back, decent workmanship and a sweet and reliable tone. It comes with a reliable SKB hardcase.
