Label reads:

Johan Hertzmann
fecit Markneukirchen anno 1923

This is German cello made in the early 1920s. The label gives its provenance as Markneukirchen and its date of origin as 1923. The cello has held up well to one-hundred years of playing; natural wear and the patina that century old varnish develops give the instrument its classic look. The woods are classic, highly flamed maple for the back, ribs, neck and scroll, and straight-grain spruce for the top. This is an easy choice for the advancing student looking for an older European instrument.
