Inv. 7033
Interpretation by Giovenale Argan, 1953

The model represents a piece of artillery constituted of a firearm in bronze, partially backloading, with unscrewable conical obturator. The artillery mount does not have wheels. The cradle can be maneuvered in elevation only, by means of two pegs that can be inserted into the series of holes on the mount.

The model is based on the drawing:
