African Zebra Hide Drum Coffee or Side Table

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A fantastic zebra drum with legs and handles, suitable for a coffee table or side table. The zebra hide is cut into ribbons, which are twisted and stretched over the sides. This creates the taut surface for the top drum head. Legs are also wrapped in zebra. The top can be used with its natural surface or a glass top could be cut to fit. The table is in nice original condition, with two small filled areas (pictured) on the top.
