A cello by Pio Montanari, Genoa 2017

Price range: £25,000 - £50,000

What a cello! When I first saw this it reminded my of a Enrico Rocca! It’s just all personality. No antiquing , no “made to look old” yet it’s just beautiful. I hope you can see it like I can. Pio is a very important Italian maker . This cello needs a good home.
