Small Iron Signal Cannon

Ref: 4161


A small 19th century iron signal cannon found in Lunenburg. The cannon is heavy solid cast, with a forged iron ring around the center. The ring is topside, which suggests this cannon was designed to be mounted on a horizontal rail, likely so it could easily be swung upward and quickly reloaded. I can find no other similar examples in my research, so this very well may be a unique Nova Scotia made piece.  Total length is 16.5 inches with a bore diameter of approximately 1.5". 

Dimensions: 16"
