Another Toy Drum
From MULESKINNER'S Photo Gallery:
Rare make-do storage box. This is actually the body of a centennial child’s parade drum, circa 1870. Somewhere along the way it lost it’s strappings and skins and rather than throwing it out they just added a wooden bottom and used it for a box. Yankee ingenuity and they saved the all important original paint too. Furrowing flag on the front and star on the back. A CUTIE! 9” diameter x 7” tall.
