    Bronze artillery piece

    Thought I would show this Bronze model I found today at an antiques fair.
    made by French sculpture Georges Omerth working 1895 to 1925,so quite an old piece.cost me a small fortune,but
    bit the bullet and couldn't let it pass.Not something you see every day.
    looking at the shell,I'm guessing it's a French 75mm.
    Model weighs around 25lbs or so,40cm long 28cm high.
    Tim.
