RR Auctions Civil War Drum by Horstmann, Brothers & Co. of Philadelphia

18 Jul

RR Auctions  Civil War Drum by Horstmann, Brothers & Co. of PhiladelphiaThis is a regulation size drum with a painted design of the American eagle with a shield and a riband in its beak that reads, “Reg. U. S. Infantry.” The paper label inside reads, “MANUFACTURED/BY/HORSTMANN, BROTHERS & CO./MILITARY FURNISHERS/FITH & CHERRY STREET/PHILADELPHIA.” The drum is 14.5″ tall and is believed to have been shortened post Civil War. The rope that holds the heads is a later replacement but the leather tension devices appear to be of the Civil War period. Overall condition is fine with only minor wear on the painted eagle device and very good colors. The skin heads and the snares are in very good condition. RR Auction COA.
