  • Fine Model of a 24-Pounder Muzzle-Loading Smoothbore Cannon, U.K. Circa 1900


    A finely cast model of an early 19th century British 24-pounder muzzle-loading smoothbore artillery cannon, together with its garrison style carriage. Both cast in 'bell metal', the gun accurately represented with the Royal Cypher of King George III, together with the broad arrow mark used by the Board of Ordnance, the underside bearing makers marks MH.


    Fitted atop a garrison style carriage bearing impressed marks 24 PR (for 24 pounder) with a sliding quoin for adjusting elevation. These guns were intended both for naval & land use, and when used for shore-based fortifications & ramparts they were then fitted on a mobile garrison type carriage such as this. Both exhibiting an exceptional warm, pinkish hue as a result of the higher ratio of copper vs that found in ordinary bronze.  And as the name suggests, because of its high quality, bell metal was most often used in the casting of bells, as well as at times in casting of cannons.

    Dimensions, 7" high x 12" long x 5" wide. Combined weight, 9 pounds.
