About the object

ENGLAND, circa 1850-60

With brass stoppers. On original trunions and mahogany carriages. Complete with quoins/wedges on the bed, and iron tackle rings. Unusually on iron wheels/trunks.

This type of lightweight cannon was probably made for a private yacht although it is conceivable that they were made simply for domestic use.

With thanks to Tony Watts for his help in identifying the origin of the cannon.
