Late 19th Century Hand-Made Drum. This wooden drum is a nice display piece with tension ropes and tacked sides. The heads have come loose from the shell of the drum, and there is a 6" tear along the edge of the top head. The snares are intact along the bottom head. The drum comes in a custom-made wooden box with a pair of mahogany drumsticks that are of 20th century construction.
