Field Cannon Desk Piece

hover over image to zoom

A fine desk piece modelled as a field cannon and accompanying ammunition box. The cannon barrel is sprung within, perhaps to fire a pencil (!); the ammunition box contains a stamp box beneath one lid and an inkwell beneath the other. A fine and accurate model made of gilded bronze and in excellent condition although the blue velvet, which is original, is very worn. Many people would replace it......but not all.

 

English circa 1880.
