In the 1860’s, the instrument was in the possession of a well-known Parisian amateur, Monsieur de Barrau, and was lent to the well-known cellist August-Joseph Franchomme (1808-1884) for the use of his son, who died young. In 1869 it was sold through the intermediary of Gand et Bernardel of Paris to Ernest De Munck (1840-1915) of Brussels, a cellist of repute and a pupil of Adrien-Francois Servais (1807-1866) who was considered one of the most influential cellists of the 19th century, and from him it passed to one of his own pupils named Heriot. In 1934, W. E. Hill and Sons sold the cello to Emanuel Feuermann (1902-1942), one of the greatest cellists in the world. Feuermann used it for many concerts and recordings, hence the name of this cello. After his death in 1942, it was acquired by the American collector Mr. Russell B. Kingman. It was then sold in 1956 to the distinguished cellist Aldo Parisot (1918-2018). In December 1996, Nippon Music Foundation acquired this cello from Aldo Parisot through a luthier.
