17C - EARLY 18C ORNATE LINSTOCK FOR LIGHTING A CANNON FUSE WITH SPEAR HEAD



Description

This listing is for an antique and seldom seen, outside of museum collections, a 17th century or very early 18th century device for both lighting a cannon fuse and defending the cannon at the same time.  It is called a linstock or lintstock.  This item was de-accessioned from a Massachusetts museum.

The weapon is all hand forged and worked steel.  It measures 28 1/4 inches or 72 cm long and would have been mounted on a long wood pole.  This would enable the person that fired the cannon to do so by using this device, which holds a slow burning fuse, to light the cannons powder off from a distance.  The fuse holder is an animals head.  The head has a screw that squeezes the two parts of the head together and this holds the fuse. The weapon end of the instrument is a long bayonet style four sided tapered spike.  The condition overall is excellent.  A rare item.  Please see many photos.

There is no reserve. 

Shipping anywhere in the US via UPS Ground with full insurance is $18.00.  To Canada with USPS Priority Mail with full insurance is $45.00. International shipping will cost $65.00 by USPS Priority Mail with full insurance.
