LARGE, Original, 19th Century Oriental Cast Bronze Lantaka Merchant Ship Deck Pirate Defence Cannon (Swivel Gun) With Wooden Display Stand. Sn 13777 - 13777
Lantaka were a type of bronze cannon mounted on merchant vessels travelling the waterways of Malay Archipelago in the 1800’s. Their use was greatest in precolonial South East Asia especially in Malaysia, the Philippines, and Indonesia. The guns were used to defend against pirates. Many of these beautiful guns were mounted on swivels and were known as swivel guns. The smaller ones could be mounted almost anywhere including in the rigging. This is a beautiful original 19th Century Cast bronze Lantaka Swivel Cannon. It is an unusually large example measuring 44” in length and has a 1 ½” diameter muzzle opening. It has the correct 6” hinged bronze mounting spike which would allow horizontal movement with thick cast curved arms secured to the barrel by lugs either side of the barrel which allows vertical elevation. The barrel is ornately decorated with foliate and geometric designs and it has a flared ornate muzzle. The top of the barrel at the muzzle has a cast stylised Dolphin or Fish. The barrel at the breech has a cast stylised crocodile. The barrel has fixed sights which are incorporated into the cast design. The barrel is open and it has its original open touch hole. The rear of the barrel has a tubular handle for directing fire. The Lantaka comes with a later purpose made heavy duty wooden display stand. The Lantaka itself weighs a hefty 31.5 Kilos and the display stand 5 Kilos (36.5 Kilos together). This historic Lantaka would make a superb display / conversation piece. Due to size and weight, delivery will be by arrangement and within the UK only. N.B. As an antique black powder cannon no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 13777

RARE, Victorian Or Earlier Medieval / Italian Renaissance Form Battle Shield With Ornate Decoration. Sn 13596 - 13596
The Victorian era saw a revival of interest in objects from the renaissance and ancient medieval cultures that influenced architecture, decoration, furnishings and art. This renewed awareness led to an intense affinity of arms and armour from those periods of history and production of quality authentic reproduction arms and armour. This is a fine medieval/ renaissance form battle shield. Its excellent quality and form indicates that it is either a Victorian reproduction or possibly a much earlier piece. The iron shield is 24” diameter with a rope effect and riveted rim. The surface of the shield elegantly curves to form a conical point which in its original form would allow the carrier to strike opponent’s, allowing the shield to be used for both defence and attack. This form also provides strength to the structure and would assist deflection of striking weapons. The whole surface of the shield has beautifully etched panels in the Italian Renaissance style featuring religious, hunting, mythical and battle iconography. The shield retains its original shape and original 4 carry strap lugs. The rear of the shield has its original leather riveted padding and a rope carry handle secured to 2 of the lugs. The shield has even patina and just one small crack approx. 5mm length to one side of the conical boss which is only visible on close inspection and does not detract from the attractiveness of the piece. The price for this quality shield worthy of further research includes UK delivery. Sn 13596
