Our daughter plays the drums and I just seem to have a weakness for drums, This is actually a pretty cool and rare old 19th century Japanese piece. Nice original wood with hand painted skin on both the top and bottom of a dragon and chicken, please see the pictures. The skin is in very good antique condition. The wood has some wear as seen in the pictures with minor scratches and dings to the red enamel paint. The metal fittings are in intact on the sides, around the skin; there is some wearing of the skin around certain parts of the edges.. I have not tried the sound just assuming more of a collectors or decorative piece. no sticks. This was a US purchase so the seller was not sure but I believe this is Chinese. Please feel free to make an offer. In order to make the pricing more evident we have changed the category from Antique to Vintage, and removed the make an offer portion with the new price!
