This is a WW2 vintage muzzle loading cannon brought to us for a major cleanup and new carriage. It was made by the current owners grandfather while he worked at a foundry in Boston, MA during the war. The barrel was heavily rusted and the cradle broken. We sandblasted and epoxy painted the barrel. a new carriage was createdfrom white oak with Mahogany wheels. The axle is made from solid brass. The irons holding the barrel to the carriage were fabricated in house. We also supplied a set of tools to load and clean the barrel. The carriage is based on a design used in the Civil War called a Marsilly carriage.
