Property of a Gentleman. Like many cellos made by Grancino it has been modified in size. The cello has been in the ownership of the same Roman family for the last hundred years or so.. Dendrochronology report from Peter Ratcliff: The two main sections are from the same tree, placing the latest ring on the bass side at 1705 and the treble at 1699.
