condition: excellent

We are selling our antique Portuguese ship cannon. An antique cannon expert believes it to be from the 1700s. It is a bronze cannon in great condition. This type of cannon is a lantaka, or rail cannon. It is somewhat rare to find a lantaka of this age in such good condition. Many of them were destroyed for their bronze. This would make a beautiful artifact for display. Comes with a small floor stand. The cannon has a story to come with it. It was featured on "Auction Kings", a show that was aired on Discovery Channel. We were on the show bidding for this cannon in an auction in Atlanta, GA. The cannon was featured on the show, complete with an interview. The cannon is very ornate and beautiful and quite heavy.

Length 51-1/4"
Bore Diameter: 1.60"
Measures 7" wide at the base (the widest point)

Asking $3,500 OBO.
