Colonial Navy Ship’s Iron 16in. Cannon Miniature Ca 1797

Presented is an exceptional cast iron miniature cannon of the type that was on the gun decks
of ships of the line during the time of the American Revolutionary Navy. It is a reproduction with outstanding attention
to detail of the 12-pound cannons on frigates of the Continental Navy such as the USS Constitution which are pictured
here.The small 8-inch cannon is shown for size comparison and is not included in the offer. Models like this were made as a presentation piece or as a foundry replica of its products.
This one has no foundry markings. Its bore does not extend to the touch hole so it can not be fired. The carriage
and its fittings are correct for this type of barrel. It has the characteristics of the most noteworthy
examples of miniature cannons of this period and type which include:Prominent cascabel knob Reinforced chamber Low line trunnions Trunion caps Five reinforcing bands Authentic carriage, wheels and drift pins Aiming platform

CONDITION: The barrel is realistic and is nicely cast. It replicates a U.S. Navy 12 pounder of
our Revolutionary Navy. It is equal in quality to the most expensive iron barrels that we have seen in cannons of this
type. The carriage is made of Mahogany in keeping with the quality of the tube. The trunnions are
at the lower section of the barrel. The trunion caps are heavy. There are no foundry or other markings.
