Guadagnini Cello Record Tarisio

Tarisio Fine Instruments and Bows has today announced the US $1.5 Million sale of the 1743 ‘ex-Havemeyer’ Guadagnini cello – the highest price ever paid at auction for a Giovanni Battista Guadagnini instrument.

The previous world record was set in 2013 for the sale of a violin, by the maker – for US $1.39 Million.

The ‘ex-Havemeyer’ instrument is one of only 40 known Guadagnini cellos in existence – and was last sold over 60 years ago.
