    Description

    OUTRAGEOUS TEDDY ROOSEVELT TOY DRUM. One of the absolute top TR 3-D items, and only the 2nd we’ve seen. Litho tin band around the drum features two repeats of a scene of Teddy, in Rough Rider garb, leading a troop of Teddy Bears acting like soldiers, carrying sword, gun flag, drum and horn! Diameter 11", height 8 ¾." We know of only one other example of this political item. It has long been the pride and joy of a prominent collector, who once turned down a $5000 offer for it. The present example is in nice, original and unmolested condition, with even the fittings, cloth-carrying "strap" and drumheads original. There is light scattered surface rust on the tin portion but, as the photos show, this is minimal and does not detract. There are 3 small holes in the top drumhead. The bottom drumhead is torn across but of course, this does not show. As another price comparable, we privately sold a more common variety of TR toy drum with Rough Rider charge scene on side, for $3000 a couple of years ago. (# This item may require additional shipping charges).
