Antonio Stradivari 1688 VC Cazenove, Marylebone

This instrument was manufactured in 1688, according to its original label. It is named after two of its past proprietors, Mr. James Cazenove, member of a renowned family of financiers, and a Mr. Payne, who lived in Marylebone, an area in London that lent its name to this cello. Alfred Hill described Mr. Payne as a ‘somewhat eccentric character’, and also deemed the man’s vast collection of fine instruments to be composed of ‘a considerable number of good, bad and indifferent instruments.’
