Fantastic 51" Double Crocodile Lantaka Rail Cannon!

With Incredible Sea Horse lifting handles! 

This is probably the best cannon of this type we have ever had.

 

This unbelievable bronze rail cannon is a absolute beauty and a museum piece.  It is unique in our experience to find a cannon decorated in this way.  It is 51.5 inches long and has a 1.6 inch bore. The weight is a massive 149 lbs. and it has a 5.25 inch diameter muzzle.  Note: The great pair of raised rear sights with holes for a cover to protect the fuse and the dark honey colored patina.  There is also a rare "double" touch hole (One still closed) so that it could still be used when the first one wares out from firings.

This cannon dates from about the 1750's and was probably cast in Portugal or in Brunei for the export trade in the Spice Islands as a presentation piece to a local chief. It has been extensively fired but is still in pristine condition.   Note: The great condition of the detailed Sea Horse lifting handles!  The price includes a Certificate of Authenticity and an export permit for an antiquity!   Hurry, this one will sell QUICK!  (#ARW-3AN)
