The first post I ever made to Mudcat was about this sideline of mine.
It was met with accusations of spam. I haven't mentioned it again till now. The scroll of the 300 year old baroque cello is like none other and is a lost art of devine eloquence. I have made a dolphin head cello, Tiger violin and a devil's violin with eyes that follow you in 3D out of an antique Stiener violin but I could never carve a Roccoco-ramic scroll like this one.
I have a duty to do the best I can for the legacy of this cello That I ressurrected from its seperate parts found in a barn in Maine 30 years ago. I made a dozen great finds from ebay back in its wild west days when people sold whatever they had on hand be it a Paris School JB Vuillaume or other great instruments from the 16-1700's. Those days are gone.
