Rarely do early example 19th century iron cannons survive in such beautiful condition. This 30 inch English swivel gun, circa 1800, is the exception.
The surface has an iron patina and retains an original cast yoke and tiller. Part of what makes this cannon unique is its unusually short tiller arm.
For a cannon of this time period, the original cast yoke is in the finest condition. It is mounted on a later base.
The barrel contains a raised crown, the letter "L" and a clearly visible maker's mark: TB&S.
Length: 30 Inches Overall. Trunnion to Trunnion: 8 Inches. Cannon Height: 13 1/2 Inches Tall (including Yoke.) Wooden base: 26 Inches Long and 8 1/2 Inches Tall. Overall Height, Including Base: 22 Inches
