This small metal cannon measures 2.16 inches long, 0.98 inches wide at the wheels & 1.26 inches high. The cannon is 1.77 inches long with a spring loaded ram rod that pulls out approximately .75 inches. The inside of the barrel is 0.13 inches which a small lead shot can be placed in and shot out by the retractable spring loaded rod.
The underside of the front "cattle-guard" nose is marked:
FRANCE
S.R
I have look at hundreds of images cannons on the internet, but have yet found one that looks like this. Any ideas of what this is a replica of ?

Thanks for looking,
Dave

    Thanks petey for the comment & appreciation. I thought I had seen something like this at one time that was of German origin, but no luck searching this time.
