ANTIQUE SIGNAL CANNON 250mm Mini Lantaka Brass Wealth Currency Brunei Borneo Brassware

(1 customer review)

$1,100.00

A very rare antique miniature cannon, decorated with dolphin handle. Brass / bronze. Solid and heavy. Circa 1900. I tip this to be once an important currency during the barter trading period, an exceptional heirloom with a healthy weight of 1 kg for a miniature, very heavy.
