GESCHÜTZE UND ZUBEHÖR - An Italien hand cannon, presumably late 15th or early 16th century

Lot 5: GESCHÜTZE UND ZUBEHÖR - An Italien hand cannon, presumably late 15th or early 16th century

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: GESCHÜTZE UND ZUBEHÖR - An Italien hand cannon, presumably late 15th or early 16th century Iron, forged, cleaned pipe with threaded screw-in breech block (length 29 cm, with base 33 cm), a large crack on the left, further crack in the right muzzle area. On the long chamber back scale-like pattern which, along with fluted muzzle area, gives the hand cannon a dragon-like appearance. The bottom of the chamber fitted with a massive hook, the long chamber bore seperated from the short barrel bore by a corded girdle with a sight notch on top, the front muzzle edge serrated. The breech worked with sunk-in touch hole, relief volutes and wave décor. Presumably later screw-in breech base. Calibre of barrel bore 38 mm, cal. of long powder chamber 19 mm, length 33 cm. According to 1976 research by the well-known specialist Robert Held the weapon comes from a medieval fortress along the Adriatic coast near Ancona. The breech loading system had already been used in other known cannons of the 15th century, what is remarkable is the screwable breech. Projectiles could be arrows and balls. Originally the barrel rested on a simple shaft. A metallurgical examination by Dr. Nigel Seeley, School of Archeology of the University of London, found out that it is "soft iron" and that it has "the impurities normally present in classical smithy iron". Cf. R. Held, A Review of 162 Antique Arms and Pertinent Objects, Lugano, Florence, London 1976, pp. 14-15, no. 1, estimated at Fr. 4000 at the time.
