This squat, melon-like barrel is actually a turn of the century Peking opera drum, originally used by a theater troupe to accompany the dances and songs of traditional Chinese opera. The drum's finely joined oak wood slats are held together by hand-smithed iron bands and cloaked in a rich patina from a century of use. Filled with lush greenery and foliage, this rustic drum barrel makes for a unexpected planter in modern interiors.
