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"x12". 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 include is a opy 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.
