Dutch Indonesian bronze swivel cannon, mid-1600s, vintage base. 87 lb (plus 27 lb for base); 37-1/2" long, 5" in diameter at widest point. Nice-sized cannon for display, as it is big enough to impress yet light enough to lift, its entire surface with an intentionally "sweaty" texture for better grip, tulip-vine design near muzzle and large tulip crest near raised touchhole, seahorse lifting handles, trunnion and cascabel intact, dark bronze color all over, 1-1/2" bore, paired with a lightly painted carved-mahogany base that was once an 1800s column plinth.
