    Large canon round German


    Recommended Posts

    Heres a piece my parents have been using as an umbrella stand for about 30 yrs now.

    Stande approx.27" tall but as you can see its squashed down a bit, and the bottom is approx. 7" accross

    Was this for a navel ship or what?

    I have no idea, its been around so long we forgot about it .

    This weekend i was help my Mother with some house cleaning and there it was.

    What do you guys think?

    Hi JensF,

    Sorry it took so long to get the correct measurement

    Across the bottom allowing for the base overlap was 16mm

    No other marking than already posted.

    I think thats normal for California, but not for Germany. They call it already the "summer of the century" here.

    Btw. I have a lot of material about shells, fuses etc. from WW1, but nearly nothing about shell cases and their size. If someone here is reading this, who has more informations, please let me know. I only have infos about the "basic" and most common types (Feldkanone, Haubitzen, M?rser etc.). Thanks!
