Title Miniature bronze model cannon barrel
Nationality British
Period 19th century
Sold

This (6 cm long) is a working cannon barrel, ie the touch hole is bored through and is capable of firing a small black powder charge. It is probably part of a toy cannon made in the first half of the 19th century, when there was a vogue for such rather lethal toys.

It has a medium bronze patina and is clearly a well thought out casting.
