Antique Breech Loading Ship's Deck Cannon Miniature

 

This Outstanding Cannon Has Been Sold. Thank you!

ANTIQUE BREECH LOADING SHIP'S DECK CANNON MINIATURE
 

Iron breech loader deck cannon of WW I or earlier image
Breech loading deck cannon at zero elevation image

 Shown above in the elevated and zero elevation. This high quality cannon replicates the design of an American breech loading deck gun used 100 years ago or more with an iron barrel and brass furniture. It comes from an upscale collection!

 

Presented is a carefully made, but unmarked, iron barrel breech loader which we believe was designed to fire 12 gauge blank shot gun shells. The barrel is not rifled, but the breech has finely machined interlocking interrupted threads. The swivel yoke and the base are castings. The rim of the base has four mounting holes. There is an adjustable recoil cylinder under the trunnions. A knurled thumb screw allows for limited adjustment in  elevation from minus 4 to plus 10 degrees. The design reminds us of early 5" 38 caliber deck guns that were used on numerous classes of U.S. Navy warships. The lanyard is a recent replacement.

Howard K. Brown's extensive cannon collection was auctioned after his death in 1962. It was comprised of miniature and full scale cannons. Prices then were 1/10th of what the ordinance would bring today. Among the many fine examples was a pair of swivel guns somewhat similar to this one. They were dated to 1840 and priced at $850.00 for the pair as shown below.

;

PAPER LABEL: There is a small label on the inner surface of the mount that reads: 8/83, 600, Newport R.I., Gains on three lines.

Miniature cannons like this were made for for actual use by the military so that gunners could learn the theory and practice of their ordinance. The foundry used the miniatures as an example of its work.  There are no foundry markings on this example, but it clearly was made in one.

Showing bore of open breech image

PROVENANCE: Acquired in 2005 from a private collection of quality miniature cannons and now new to the market.

CONDITION:  The patina runs the range from brown to black with small surface pitting. The bore has no lands and as would be expected is dirty, but there is no rust in the chamber or tube. The brass work at the hinge and the trunnions has a soft natural patina. The lanyard is a recent replacement. The cannon cocks and fires as it should, but we have not tried to fit a 12 gauge cartridge in the chamber.

This  fine example is being sold for display purposes only. No attempt should be made to fire it without inspection by a gunsmith.
