Description:Fabulous, and by definition unique, patent model. This was awarded patent #182,584 and was a frame for a cannon emplacement which secured the gun so there would be no recoil. The model is crafted of wood and measures 12" x 12". Included are the very cool original tags. You can see where these tags were affixed to the model by red cloth ribbon -- the government ribbon from which the term "red tape" was derived. Also included is a copy of the patent, some other info on Krupp, and a certificate of authenticity from a dealer in California. Cool piece that nobody else is going to have.
