Feast your landlubber eyes upon this Authentic Herreshoff Saluting Cannon, in mint condition! This is the only authorized reproduction of L. Frances Herreshoff’s real saluting cannon and it is made of polished bronze, measures 16″ long and sits in a solid teak carriage. This remarkable rarity loads and fires 10 gauge blank shot gun blanks with a hardwood mallet, which is included in the price. Manual firing of the cannon is accomplished by striking the cascabel knob smartly with mallet. The empty shell is extracted by running the mallet handle down the bore.
