Decent Vintage Merson Violin Cello - Nice Project/Needs TLC

I picked this up some time ago I believe from southern Vermont. it is structurally sound but obviously could use a good going over. The little corner bead is missing on much of it and strings are needed with one knob. Also there is a little filling here and there and the veneer cracked away on the head by adjustment knobs. But as mentioned structurally the neck is good, and the fronts have no cracks and I know a violin cello of this nice has to be worth 400 anyway. I used to deal with a violin restorer guy and he told me the beads were not that hard or big of a deal. I am just trying to move some older items that shop visitors may make good projects from. It measures about 41' long x 15 1/2" wide x about 7" deep. I tried to picture it well to show it properly and answer some questions. I also priced it at just about what I paid and just trying to find a good home for it and somebody that has the time. thanks for your time and interest and the nice first two years on Ruby Lane.
