This Fine Cannon Has Been Sold. Thank You!
MODEL1841 SMOOTH BORE ROUGH CASTING - SIGNAL CANNON
Presented is a rough casting of a Mid 19th Century
cast bronze signal cannon with reinforced chamber. It's design and proportions identify it as a reduced size Model 1841 six
pounder that was prominently used during the Mexican War period, 1846-1848, and carried forward into the
Civil War. Note that this cannon has never been finished. Work was started grinding
down the casting marks, and drilling the touch hole, but was not completed. The casting obviously languished for years, and
CONDITION: The cannon is in a rough state.

not be fired and is being sold for display only.

Weight of cannon
This fine example of a Model 1841 salute cannon is being
sold for display purposes only, and no attempt should be made to fire it.
1841 CANNON: This design shows the last vestiges of the highly decorated artillery pieces that prevailed
until the beginning of the 19 Century: breech band, cascable fillet, fillet and roundel at the throat, and an echinus on the
muzzle face were also features of the M1841 12-pounder. All were discontinued on the Model 1857 Napoleon that replaced
the 6 and 12 pounders as the smoothbore of choice during the Civil War. Attempts to convert some of these guns to
rifles, using the James system of rifling, had only limited success.
