Eagle Bass Drum

From MULESKINNER'S Photo Gallery:


A Big Civil War Era Bass Drum. This birds eye maple drum body has a great natural old patina as well as an outstanding original painted decoration of an Eagle and a Shield! Nice large decoration because the drum itself is so large. This was probably used as a parade marching drum. A Real Beauty! It measures a large 27” in diameter x 15” deep. These great old decorated drums don’t come along much any more.
