Bore 1.25 inches.

Clear vent, some unidentified blockage towards the bottom of the bore, which I haven't attempted to clear, but light can be seen from the vent.

Twin dolphin ring handles.

Well cast cascabel with acorn shaped button.

Due to the weight shipping will be by private courier within the UK, and will be discussed with prospective overseas buyers.

Bronze cannon, especially unexcavated, and beautiful bronze cannon, are hard to find and very expensive. This example represents good value, and makes the perfect "house cannon".
