MINIATURE PERSONAL BRONZE CANNON 

LATE 1700's!

The Carriage is Included

Known as a personal cannon, these miniatures were popular in the East Indies starting in the 16 th Century, where they were mounted on small ships as swivel guns, and also considered a form of currency. They were not only intended for use as weapons, but were admired for their beauty.

Presented is a late 18th Century cast bronze miniature cannon. It is decidedly European in design, but was likely cast in Indonesia, maybe even as a swivel gun because of its hollow cascabel which was designed to accept a stick for aiming. Its proportions are of a ship's long gun, or that of a field gun. It is of the type of weapon that was intended as a presentation piece, for personal protection in close in fighting, as a signaling device, or as a form of currency. The location of the trunnions date this cannon as having been cast after 1725. The Cronstedt system in that year located the trunnions at the same level as the inner chamber, before this, they had been placed at a lower level.

The cannon has a rich dark, patina with green overtones. The trunnions are cast as part of the barrel which is traditional. There are no mold marks or inscriptions. The touch hole has a rim around it and is clear to the bore which runs the length of the barrel.
 
A number of pictures show the cannon mounted on a carved ebony wood carriage which came with the cannon. The left wheel has two broken spokes and the right wheel one.
 
DIMENSIONS: 12 3/8“ L x 2 1/4“ W  Bore 5/8“                          WEIGHT: 2 3/4 lbs
 
This exceedingly fine example is being sold for display purposes only, and no attempt should be made to fire it.
 
              5/8" Bore and band
              Cascabal & Touch Hole       
      Cascabal accepts aiming stock
           Indonesian style carriage

HISTORY: Usually the better quality miniature personal cannons were cast in Holland, Europe and England starting in the 1600's. These were finer in detail, design, and quality then those that were made in the Spice Islands.  They were intended as a presentation piece, for personal protection in close in fighting, as a signaling device, or as a form of currency.

VINTAGE BRONZE ENGLISH SHIPS SIGNAL CANNON

Dated 1905, London
