Amazing Tudor Naval Cannon (with hidden pencil sharpener) Fantastic historic model item with classic design. The cannon that saw use in the Tudor navy had a relatively long barrel and light construction. They fired solid round shot projectiles at long ranges along a flat trajectory. One of the first ships to be able to fire a full cannon broadside was the Mary Rose, initially equipped with 78 guns. It was one of the earliest purpose-built warships to serve in the English Navy. This naval cannon is made from metal and has a pencil sharpener in the base, it measures 7.7cm. For you to own - for your office, workshop, schoolroom, history project etc. Great for would-be historians, and Medieval Lovers everywhere!!!! Put it on your desk and yes, you too can be Henry VIII defending the high seas against the French, no the Spanish, no the French... -) A wonderful gift too! And what a stocking filler for Christmas!
