Museum Quality

Presented is an exceptional, larger than normal size desktop, cast bronze miniature cannon replicates the type that was on the gun decks of ships of the line during the
time of the Sailing Navy. Models like this were made as presentation pieces or as a foundry replica of its products. It has
various foundry markings which include George Rex,  a date of 1724 and above the touch hole, and 12 PDR for 12 pounder.
The deep dark patina is almost gun metal black. The carriage and its bronze fittings are authentic to the period and
appear to be original. The front of the cannon and bore shows an accumulation of powder burns, evidence of it being
fired. It has the characteristics of the most noteworthy examples of cannons of this period and type which include: Prominent cascabel knob Reinforced chamber  Centerline trunnions Cast trunion caps Five reinforcing bands Authentic carriage           Cascabal                10
