This item is a beautiful 18th CENTURY WALL BREACHING CANNON MODEL. it is crafted out of oak and brass. This is one of a number of cannon models we acquired in the UK. They were all hand crafted by one individual and we now only have two remaining in stock. These cannons were used for the destruction of castle walls during sieges. This cannon barrel is drilled to the fuse hole and therefor can be fired. The model includes an ammo box between the trails on the carriage and two ramrods. It measures almost 17" from the front of the barrel to the end of the carriage. The detail and quality of construction is fabulous and given that attention to detail, we're sure that this is a historically correct representation of a breaching cannon.
