Rare Instrument 1850
James M'Intosh Worked in Blairgowrie Scotland'
One piece finely figured back, with matching ribs.
This Cello is now in the workshop to be set up and made ready
Due in the showroom mid October.
This is a really unique personal instrument full of character. Born in 1801, this Scottish maker was said to of made more than 250 instruments. Including 40 cellos. This generously arched instrument is only broadly based on the Stainer pattern.
Completely unique scroll and F holes. This asymmetrical instrument was built without an internal or external form. The scroll was once upon a time fitted with mechanical machine heads.
The neck, which is being replaced is proportionately long in relationship to the body size, making it a challenge in the upper positions. But what a beautiful sound it gives. This instrument is available to try, please contact us.
Sorry this instrument has now sold
