Welcome to Antiques & Moore! This listing is for an original mid-19th Century wooden rope tension child size snare drum made for actual use not as a toy.
The drum is made with a solid hardwood shell that has been cut and steam bent with natural vellum (animal hide) ends, rope tension support with heart shaped natural leather tab ears. There is a partial hand painted design remaining in the center of the drum. Measures 7 1/2" high and 11" in diameter.
This wonderful little drum is in very good Estate condition with no major flaws. There are obviously minor signs of wear but overall the condition seems to be good and the drum can be played.
One of the heart shaped leather tab ears is broken on the end but all are still present. The rope is in very good condition with no breaks.
Please note that we have a nice pair of pre-Civil War era child's leather brogan shoes that were from the same family as this child's drum that are listed separately.
