Bronze signal cannon with "sea dog" lifting handles, probably British, 1600s, with ornate mahogany stand. 47 lb, 27" long (cannon only). Attractively simple gun with tangential striations, 2-1/2" muzzle with 1" bore, short trunnions, raised touch-hole and 1-1/2" finial-like cascabel, but best feature is the lifting handles, which are clearly dogs and not dolphins, with light encrustation around the "dogs" but otherwise rather clean and darkly patinated from age, elegantly displayed on a hand-carved stand.
