Vintage furniture: Boosey & Hawkes drums as coffee tables

Looking for a vintage coffee or drinks table that is steeped in culture and has a fascinating story to tell?

Metrodeco is thrilled to have acquired two wonderful 1950s brass drums from legendary instrument manufacturer Hawkes & Son.

There are two – the Timpani (pictured below) and the Renaissance – and we think they make the most wonderful pieces of post war furniture that would light up any home.

Both come with Remo Weatherking drum heads and well-kept smooth brass bodies.

Hawkes & Son was founded in 1865 as a vendor of orchestral sheet music, eventually going on to build instruments from a factory in north London.

In 1930, the business merged with a rival company to form Boosey & Hawkes, which became one of the world’s leading classical music publishers and manufactured instruments in many different countries.

We’re selling these coveted pieces, which were built in the United States, at £500 for the smaller of the pair (pictured above and directly below) and £650 for the larger (picture on request).
