Rare Police Kettle Drum Skirt- This consists of three panels of a drum skirt made of a green wool material.  In the center of each panel is the most spectacular silver bullion police eagle that you could ever lay your eye upon. The detailing and condition of these eagles defies description. Each eagle measure approximately 9 1/2" high and has an 11" wing span. The green wool background does have considerable tracking and I counted approximately six (6) small moth holes but there is a huge amount of material and this is only a slight distraction. The entire piece has a silver bullion tressing and the bottom has silver bullion fringe. This would attach to the drum by a series of black ribbed silk ties which are all present. The backing is a light green cloth material. There is a large silken Nurenburg tailor's tag on the back. This is an extremely desirable piece of police embroidery which measures approximately 63" long by 17" high. Overall the condition is near excellent.
