Hello, this looks to be an authentic brass cannon I would say from the petina the age is 1800s early 1900. Does it have any marks, etching or imprinted with any words or numbers? The value alone would run $15,000 to 18,000.00 without any markings. It is best not clean or polish the cannon unless you wish to keep it and enjoy the piece. What is the bore size? If there is any markings please post a photo so I may tie this to a ship or company. I await to hear from you.
Hello, thank you for the measurements I am in the process of research these now and will reply here shortly. They have helped me greatly.
Hello, I am trying to pin point exactly what this cannon was on. Thank you for the measurements it has helped me greatly and I will be posting my findings and value this evening. It has been a challenge but I am getting the information needed. Thank you for your patience.
I would say to contact Skinners AUction house and see if they would be interested in handling this auction for the cannon https://www.skinnerinc.com/search?s=Cannon I have found they have sold both brass and cast ron. I place the age to be 1800-1900s and value for the size and length of the cannon to be between 10,000-15000.00 The measurements helped clarify the type to be a naval cannon and would have had a brass base. The wood box it is in now was for protection when transporting. If I may be of further service please let me know. I am happy to help always.
