Milanese cello

This fascinating cello has long been thought to be made by Domenico Busan (Venice 1747) of which it bears a label.

After thorough research it is now certified to be of Milanese origin approximately 1760, although the maker is still anonymous and therefore the prize is still very interesting.
The sound is powerful and rich, due to its full archings and typical materials. The top is made by various segments of spruce with excellent sound characteristics The back ribs and scroll of nut wood, typical for the makers of that period in Milan, Italy. Aesthetically the instrument is mysteriously dark red-brown. More  info on request.
