"Come and Take It Cannon"
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.

This replica "Come and Take It" Gonzales, Tx. Cannon was made for a customer who wanted to
put it in his office for a Texas theme and conversation piece.
