A fine example of the work of Charles François Langonet (1861-1929) who was employed by W E Hill & Sons for most of his working life and who produced many fine instruments. This Stradivari model is beautifully conceived and is very rewarding to play.  The cello has a carefully repaired sound post crack in the back and a sound post crack in the front, hence the very modest price.

Here is a 20 second recording of this cello:
