Edward Burr was New Zealand’s first professional full-time luthier, setting up his workshop in Wellington in 1921 and producing over 155 instruments before his death in 1938. He had made well over 100 violins before he embarked on his first cellos in 1927, but made up for lost time by producing four of them in the space of a year. The wood is well-chosen: the back and ribs have a narrow, light flame and the neck and scroll are particularly handsome, with a strong narrow flame which is enhanced by the golden brown varnish used over the whole instrument. This would be an excellent instrument for a talented and advancing student.
