Bronze and mahogany. Ordnance model of a 24-pounder bronze carronade, with tapering sighted barrel cast with raised mouldings, the cascabel button with elevating screw and integral breeching loop, the wooden platform with iron and bronze mounts, the right side applied with a brass plaque inscribed 'Model of one of the 24pr carronades mounted in the Casemated Flanks of Fort Regent Island of Jersey by M. Genl. Humphrey R. Engrs.’
 
Fort Regent was the principal fortification on Jersey during the Napoleonic Wars. It was largely constructed under the direction of Lieutenant-General John Humfrey (c.1756-1832), Colonel Commandant of the Corps of Royal Engineers. He was commissioned 2nd Lieutenant into the Royal Engineers in 1776, became Lieutenant 1783, Captain 1793, Major 1802, Lieutenant-Colonel 1805 and Major-General on 4 June 1814.
