The original manuscript label inside this Stradivari model cello states ‘Londra 1791’ and it was therefore made soon after Vincenzo’s return from Paris. The cello displays a much thicker and more textured varnish than seen on earlier instruments, and once again willow is used for the blocks and linings, which are now morticed into the corner blocks. Also unlike the earlier instruments, the edges of the scroll and the rib mitres have been blackened, a feature begun by Stradivari in the 1680s and perhaps taken up by Vincenzo towards the end of his stay in Paris. The dendrochronology report suggests that the latest visible ring for the bass side dates from 1772 and the treble from 1774, but that there may be a couple of further rings unseen.
