Chinese Republic Ceremonial Low War Drum c1930s

Low War Drum. The Zhangu (战鼓), or war drum, is a Chinese musical instrument. It is similar to the Tanggu (堂鼓) in appearance, but is lower in pitch. Also known as the Biangu (扁鼓). it was an instrument used in ritual music and also popular with traditional wedding bands. 

The patina of the wood and the animal skin drum cover shows true age and the faded writing speaks of a 1000 ceremonies and the rhythm of life. Beautiful.
