Top left shows double dovetail patches fitted into the belly flush with the inner surface. This cello had a crack along the side of the bass bar. The crack was too close to fit normal studs. The bar was removed studs fitted and a new bass bar fitted . The image above right shows an unusual repair at the bottom block!!! I would say this is most unusual and would never do this type of repair. The rectangle black shape is a magnetic wolf suppressor, when being played a corresponding piece is placed on the outside held in position by the magnet. Photo on the left job done.
