A toy cannon, cast in one piece with a knob-ended cascabel, integral trunnions, and tapered chase with flared muzzle. Miniature cannons of this nature were sold to children as working replicas of their full size counterpart. Probably originally mounted on a wooden carriage. A small charge of blackpowder would be placed in the barrel followed by a small piece of wadding and a lead shot or stone.
