A cello by Simon Andrew Forster

London, circa 1840

The Forsters were one of the leading English families of cello makers in the 18th and 19th centuries and this fine cello comes from the hand of its youngest member, Simon Andrew. It is based on the Stradivari model which emerged around 1800 in the work of William Forster III, Simon Andrew’s father, and it is covered in the rich red varnish which is typical of the Forsters. The cello sounds strong and is remarkably responsive.
