This model of an 18th century Spanish cannon, “El Tigre” type was primarily used as a fortress gun though some ships of the line were sturdy enough to employ them. The steps in the carriage were used to adjust the angle of fire. An impressive 17.5 inches in length, this beautiful reproduction is truly a remarkable display for your home or office. Features an ornately designed 17 inch metal barrel with antique brass patina finish and metal furniture. Barrel angle may be adjusted by rear height selection gear. Furniture locks may be unhocked and barrel can be removed. Excellent condition with minor wear as you would expect on a vintage item. This is an estate find. See photos for more information.
