This matched pair of ships carriages were made for outdoor display to support two 48" long
fiberglass barrels.  They are made of pressure treated pine and stained to endure the
weather of the Florida coast.
Each carriage has black accents, is 33" long  and weighs approximately 55 pounds.

This replica cannon was a customers request for display in their Houston restaurant at the Taste
Of Texas. It is based on the "Come and Take It" cannon barrel in the museum in Gonzales,
Texas.  An important part of Texas history, this barrel is full scale at 21 ½” long and 3 7/16"
diameter at the muzzle the same as in the museum.    
Due to space constraints, My customer opted to have the cannon mounted on a wooden stand
instead of a carriage.  The “stand” mimics the way the barrel is mounted on the carriage in the
museum.  The wood barrel is faux painted and the metal straps are hand forged then aged for
the historic nostalgic look.

These 3 replica "Come and Take It" Gonzales, Tx. Cannons were made for a customer who is
opening a gun club in Fort Bend County and it will be called "Texas Gun Club" and have a Texas
theme. These table size display pieces will be displayed there.
