    Found some information for you:

    Counterfiet Besson & Co instruments. This may possibly be an inferior instrument constructed by an inferior imitator made to look like a genuine reputable instrument manufacturer - hence why it was in the trash.

    OR ...

    It could be a Military Side drum per this article in Encylopedia Britannica.
