Very fine English cello by Lockey Hill circa 1788

Beautiful rich sound with a fine varnish (see photos)

Tree ring analysis showing the date to be circa 1788 with both sides significantly cross match a cello by William Forster 1787 suggesting that they may well have come from the same tree. Full analysis report available upon request.
