Iron Chinese pole-cannon, 1700s. 3 lb 6 oz, 8½" tall and 3" in diameter. A very strange weapon (first we have seen) with three holes in one end (with 6 lateral reinforcements) in which shot and powder were loaded, the other end a cylindrical receptacle for a wooden pole, very heavy and solid, lightly encrusted. Can you imagine the recoil?
