    ~ Large 19th Century Bronze Signalling Cannon ~


    The barrel of the cannon has four reinforcing rings, a rounded cascabel and as the measurements seem to be in centimetres rather than inches the cannon is likely European.

    The vent hole is clear and the oxidisation around it shows it has been fired in the past.

    The cannon has an oak carriage with cast iron wheels and a bronze screw for changing the elevation.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    Overall the piece is 14.5 inches (37 cm) tall, 16.2 inches (42 cm) wide,
    26 inches (66 cm) long.

    The barrel is 17.7 inches (45 cm long) and has an approximate bore of 1.4 inches (3.5 cm) in diameter.

    The cannon weighs approximately 7.5 stone (47.6 kg).

    ~ Condition ~

    The barrel has minimal pitting and a decent overall reddened patina, though there is a cleaned area to the right of the muzzle which reveals the true metal.

    Unfortunately nearby the muzzle the barrel has two holes and minor cracks on the exterior. The first hole is approx 7 mm in diameter and the small one approx 2mm. On the opposite side, inside the barrel, is only one visible hole around 2-3 mm in diameter.

    Both holes were patched in the past but the patch came off.

    The wheels and metal parts of the carriage have the expected patina for its age.

    ~ Transportation ~

    We would prefer collection in person from Portsmouth Historic Dockyard but are happy to liaise with your transportation requirements.
