Scale Model of 18-Pound Brass Naval Cannon and Oak Carriage, mounted on a Deck Plane, with wedge elevation block, brass fittings and attachments, and oak wheels, set on a simulated gun deck base with gunwales and woven rope line tackle. Brass nameplate on the front reads ''18 Pounder 1812''. Probably a model of an English naval gun. Brass cannon body is approx. 14-1/2'' long and 2-1/4'' in dia. at the rear, with an 11/16(.682)'' smooth bore. Muzzle flares out slightly and is approx. 1-5/8'' in dia. Small touch hole with priming cup at rear. Smooth body with simulated bands around the rear of the muzzle, center, and rear. Condition is excellent, the brass cannon body having a nice dark patina, and the oak carriage is nicely detailed with an aged finish to the wood. Rope recoil fitments are done very nicely and to scale. The simulated deck adds a nice attention to detail on this model. Body of the deck plane mount is painted black and in good condition. Est.: $1,800-$2,400. (Charles Bremner Hogg Jackson collection)
