Ancient Asian hand cannon constructed of forged and wire wrapped iron, 8 shots, with central access surrounded by 8 barrels. The cannon portion measures 9" from tip to tip, the shaft has been lost, the opening to thebarrel approximately .31 cal. Heavily rusted and pitted, in fair to good condition. It is hard to date these weapons as they were virtually unchanged from 12th to 17th century. Most probably Chinese, however, all of Asia made just such weapons. Est.: $400-$4,000
