Unpainted Civil War Snare Drum

Nice Civil War Snare Drum 15" tall; 17 1/4" in diameter. Unpainted wood showing about 70% old varnish, decorated with small round-head brass tacks in typical pattern surrounding the vent hole. Klemm and Brother 705 Market Street Philadelphia maker's label visible through the vent hole. Hoops with about 70% original red paint. The drum retains all leather tightening straps and is complete with period skin heads. The ropes are replaced; none of the snares remain but brass fitting is intact. Estimate: $1,250 - up.
