A very unusual presentation for a rail gun, this bronze piece has a sleek form that makes it much more elegant in appearance than many other similar deck guns of the era. Likely French, the only markings we could find on the piece was the number two near the base as pictured. The gun is set within a period hardwood bell form base- a great overall presentation.
Gun is 30 inches in length overall, 1 3/8 inch bore. 19 1/4 inches at highest when tilted up.
Hardwood Stand- 6 1/2 inches high with gun removed, 12 inch diameter at widest.
