Antique Bronze Barrel Signal Cannon on Green Carriage

This Great Old Relic Has Been Sold.
Thank you!

ANTIQUE BRONZE BARREL SIGNAL CANNON
FIELD CARRIAGE ORIGINAL GEEN FINISH

left side of cannon image
Right side of cannon image

 

 The signal cannon shown above is a miniature example similar to the M1841, 6 Pound field gun that was used through the Civil War and beyond.  The rare paint scheme and workmanship makes it it an exceptional buy.

PRICE 850.00 plus shipping to 48 contiguous States $45.00

Presented is a bronze barreled cannon mounted on a field type carriage which, except for its unusual fluted muzzle, looks very similar to a M 1841, 6 pounder that was used through the Civil War and beyond.  The carriage and iron wheels are painted in a light green tempera paint that is an old style color. It makes a very attractive display. There is significant paint loss on the top of the carriage's trail. Both the carriage and the iron wheels are outlined in yellow.

Miniature cannons like this were made for actual use or by the foundry as an example of its work.  Or they were used to train cannoneers in their job. There are no foundry markings on this example which is not unusual.  The well used touch hole can be seen at the far left. Its size is enlarged due to repeated firings.

The bronze barrel has an unusual trumpet shaped mouth and has a dark brown patina that only comes with age. The patina ranges with only minor variations in shade over the cannon's length. The original carriage is made from a hard wood and has approximately 70 percent of it original finish remaining. It is fitted with brass hardware. The bore is free to the touch hole, and shows evidence of being fired.

This cannon is being offered for display only and should not be fired unless inspected by a gunsmith

The trunnions are located at the center of the tube and date the design to after 1725.  The introduction of the Cronstedt system coincided with the trunnions being located at the mid level of the inner chamber. Before this, they had been placed below the centerline.

DIMENSIONS: 

Cannon Length overall   19" Length Barrel    10"      Bore 37/64"  or .57 Cal
Maximum diameter of tube   1 1/2"     At 1st ring 1"  Weight of cannon 9 pounds

Back of cannon image

PROVENANCE:  The cannon comes from a private collection and was acquired in the normal course of business.

Front view of cannon image

CONDITION:  The light green tempera paint is an old color that dates back to the 1750's or earlier. It is water based. Most of the paint loss is on the top of the trail of the carriage. Both the carriage and the iron wheels are outlined in yellow. One of the axel cotter pins holding the wheel is a replacement. There is a bright green verdigris on the bronze barrel at the breech and cascabal. There is also a casting irregularity on the left side of the tube forward of the touch hole which is free to the bore. The undercarriage has a split in the front axel's wood as seen in the photos. Except for the paint loss, the wood carriage is in excellent condition.  There are some minor marks of age as expected. There are no maker's marks or inscriptions.

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