J.L. Miller Bass Drum

This 28" bird's eye maple bass drum is sure to clean up nicely. eBayer cape-estate( 10585) (cape cod antiques collectibles,etc) describes eBay item no. 220326041525 as follows:

J.L. Miller & Co. Providence, RI Civil War Era Drum

Fresh from the barn of an antique home, we offer this wonderful, large drum labeled JL Miller Co, dealers in drums of all descriptions, 10 Cove St. Providence, RI. This wonderful drum measures approximately 28" in diameter and 15" wide. We do not know a lot about drums, but it appears to be in decent condition for its age. Birds eye veneer shows a bit of cracking in a couple of spots. Would benefit from a cleaning. We have not attempted to clean it. We will leave that to the new owner. Retains the original label on the inside of the case, as shown in photos. A great old drum!!
