Cello Eye Candy

Wow! This is the back of a 1717 (mostly) Strad cello, being sold by the estate of Amarylis Fleming through Tarisio.

Acorrding to the Tarisio page, the back and sides are original, while the top and scroll are the work of José Contreras. I’m infatuated. I want it.

The New York Sun says the estimate is estimate of $1.75 million to $2.3 million. I’m definitely going to start buying lottery tickets (grin).

(And what a beautiful photo. I’ve learned how difficult it is to take a good, glare-free photo of an instrument.)
