A finely cast pair of bronze ceremonial cannon with ringed barrels, on mahogany carriages with bronze fittings.

This pair of small cannon are almost identical to a pair supplied by Joseph Lang of Haymarket, London for the 'Lincoln' frigate, a one-third scale 40 ton model made for use on the lake at Clumber Park, seat of the Dukes of Newcastle and positioned in the dukeries of Nottinghamshire. A diary entry by the 4th Duke of Newcastle of 12th November 1838 reads: 'I launched my new ship today. She looks very well upon the water and does credit to the builder.' The first Lincoln was built in 1814 or 1815. Another diary note, for 13th October 1831, states she was equipped with '14 little ship guns'. The 1938 frigate appears to have had portholes and so the 1839 cannon must have been made for the new Lincoln. The frigate survived until the 1940's when it was set alight by children. The remains were sunk in the lake, where it is still partly visible when the water is low. Literature: John Fletcher, 'Where Truth Abides', the edited diaries of the 4th Duke of Newcastle (1822-1850)
