As Found. A vintage brass replica mini cannon with moving wheels and various (presumably) removable parts.
The cannon has been lightly cleaned in order to preserve the patina, but would probably benefit from further more expert cleaning. We are not sure whether all the parts to this cannon are present (for example, there is what is possibly a retainer on top of the main body of the cannon, upon which another part might have been attached at some stage), or in fact whether it is a working miniature or not. There is a small split in the part at the end of the cannon which may or may not have been intentional. We are inclined to think the latter but as we are not experts on this type of item, we cannot be certain.
There do not appear to be any visible makers marks.
The cannon measures in total approximately 6in in length and just over 2.25in outer wheel rim to outer wheel rim. When the cannon is raised it stands just over 3.5in high. Exact age unknown but probably dates from the first part or middle of last century.
