Noble & Cooley Bass Drum

Civil War Militia Bass Drum
Painted vignette with Patrotic Spreadwing Eagle clutching flag with unknows number of stars, (appears to be 20+ stars). Although the year 1812 is indicated thorough the peep hole, there is no maker's label. This drum was probably made in Granville Mass by Noble and Cooley C. 1860; replaced ropes and tension pulls; otherwise original. A very hard to find 24.25-inches tall x 33-inch diameter.
Price: $3,950
