Here we have a very fine War of 1812 or Revolutionary War period bronze swivel gun cannon. It measures 21" in length and the bore diameter is just shy of 1 3/4". The bore goes down to the touch hole and light can be seen in the bore when a light is held to the touch hole. The flared muzzle is 2 7/8" in diameter and at its widest point at the rear it is about 3 5/8" in diameter. There are no markings present so I can not say for sure where this cannon was made. It was found in a house in Delaware. It has a wonderful patina and bears a number of dents etc. that you would expect on a 200 + year old cannon. It would have had a metal or wood handle inserted at the rear so the gun sitting on a yoke could be swiveled quickly to either clear a deck or other target. This cannon is being sold as a collector's item and not for use. I feel that this piece could be as early as the Revolutionary War period or up to the War of 1812. I would be happy to answer any questions you may have. Satisfaction guaranteed.
