Length: 29.8cm (11.75in)
The carronade was invented by General Robert Melville (1723–1809), the son of a Scottish minister, who persuaded the Carron Company in Falkirk to manufacture the guns - hence the name ‘carronade’. Our model may well be a maker’s model presented by the Carron Company to General Humfrey in gratitude for what would have been an important Government contract in the Regency period.
