    LARGE, Original, 19th Century Oriental Cast Bronze Lantaka Ship's Quater Deck Pirate Defence Cannon (Swivel Gun) With Wooden Display Stand. A 573 - A 573 / 14075

    Lantaka were a bronze cannon mounted on the quarter decks of ships travelling around the Malay Archipelago in the 1800’s. Their use was greatest in pre-colonial South East Asia especially in Malaysia, the Philippines, and Indonesia. The guns were used to defend against pirates. Many of these guns were mounted on swivels and were known as swivel guns. The smaller ones could be mounted almost anywhere including in the rigging. This is an original 19th Century Cast bronze Lantaka Swivel Cannon. It is an unusually large example measuring 35 ½” in length and has a 1” diameter muzzle opening. It has the correct 5 ½” hinged bronze mounting spike with thick cast curved arms secured to the barrel by lugs either side of the barrel which allows vertical elevation. The barrel is ornately decorated with foliate and geometric designs and it has a flared ornate muzzle. The barrel has fixed sights which are incorporated into the cast design. The centre section has 2 cast stylised Fish or Dolphin form handles. The barrel is open and it has its original open touch hole. The rear of the barrel has a tubular handle for directing fire. The Lantaka comes with a later, quality, purpose made heavy duty wooden display stand which fits the Lantaka spike snugly and allows it to freely rotate 360 degrees horizontally and positioning of the barrel up and down vertically . The Lantaka itself weighs a hefty 20.6 Kilos and the display stand 3 Kilos (23.6 Kilos together). This historic Lantaka would make a superb display / conversation piece. The price includes UK delivery. N.B. As an antique black powder cannon no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. A 573
