Decorative and Fun Set of hand-decorated wooden Bongo Drums . I found these in the south of France in a town on the 'Riviera'.

A relic of the 1940s-1950s, days of the Afro-Cuban Jazz music craze and later Salsa, I think this set may have originated from Cuba. The 3 drums are beautifully crafted in wood and the decorations are hand painted. The 2 larger drums are set together on a metal stand measuring 39 inches high x 31 wide.
The small drum now sits separately, without the metal rod that originally clamped it in front of the larger two drums.

Circa 1948-1960. In very good condition with a small amount of wear. The animal hide drum tops are virtually perfect.
