Provenance
Prior to 1919 the cello was in the possession of André Hekking (1866-1925). Hekking was an eminent French soloist who became a professor at the Conservatoire de Paris. His daughter Jeanne married Marcel Vatelot, and in 1919 the cello was sold by Vatelot-Hekking to Marc Laberte.

By 1961 the cello was in the possession of the Swiss cellist, viola da gamba player and conductor August Wenzinger (1905-1996), and it subsequently passed to the Hungarian cellist Zoltan Racz. In 2007 it was purchased by the current owner, who loaned it for many years to the Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben.
