Signal cannons were used to make salutes, to warn of danger,
and to attract attention in the case of an emergency. They were also used to start races.  These cannons were
generally cast in the style of the period to which they belong.

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

This is a great-looking bronze barreled signal cannon that follows the design of the Mountain Howitzers that were used in the Civil War.  There are no markings. The trunnions and the elevation screw is reminiscent of some Civil War signal cannons.

There is evidence that the cannon has been in use. It arrived to us with an epoxy plug which we have removed, and the touch hole is open to the bore.  The elevation screw is functional.
