Jean Baptiste Vuillaume

Dating from 1865, this cello was made for Count Sheremetiev, and is one of a quartet of Vuillaume instruments commissioned by him. The quartet are decorated with his coat of arms, and this broad, Servais-inspired cello is branded and signed by the maker internally. World expert Jean-Jacques Rampal refers to the cello as being “exceptional” in his certificate of authenticity, a term which I think also well describes its tone, which is nothing short of cavernous in depth and projection.
