Very rare anti-rigging shot from the Nelson Era. In contrast to common chain-shots, this piece is made of two full balls of 52mm calibre, joint by four sharp blades. The complete construction is very elaborate with pivot joints on the balls and decorated riveted joints between the blades. This is the only example of this arcane ammunition we have ever seen.
Length 85cm, weight ca. 1,5kg. Including 27cm x 18cm wall-mount made from elmwood.

Item G069. 2.000EUR.
