This 24 pound bronze swivel cannon is the type usually called a lantaka. These small cannon were made in various parts of Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines, supposedly for anti-pirate use. This model has a 7/8 inch bore and measures 28 3/4 inches long. It has an old stand, no doubt somewhat newer than the cannon itself. Low relief ornamentation and the nice old patina can be seen in closeup images.

From the last pre-Muslim kingdom on Java, this pottery head dates to about 1400-1450. It measures 20cm high X 26cm wide or 11.5 inches X 10.25 inches. Such ceramic and stone sculptures are not well published. One small volume by H.R.A. Muller, Javanese Terracottas, illustrates both sculptures and vessels from that kingdom. This head has a fitted stand. It has various repairs, visible in the images.
