Pewter/wood clyster pump (caulk gun) in six parts, ex-1715 Fleet. 781 grams total, the body 8" long and 2-1/2" diameter. The cylindrical metal body is intact and the other metal parts are present but disembodied, with separate pieces of the wooden handle incredibly remaining and conserved, the entire object believed by some to be a medical pump for administering enemas but actually more likely the ship's carpenter's caulking gun, in any case one of very few such items found from Spanish wrecks. From the San Roman site of the 1715 Fleet, with Sedwick certificate from 2003, pedigreed to our Auction 8 (lot #2455). Recovered from:Spanish 1715 Fleet, east coast of Florida
