This excellent resin figurine is part of the Beachcomber’s International Collection of Limited Edition Nautical Figurines.

This sculpture is titled “Loading Cannon”. It showcases an old mariner poised to load a cannon with a cannonball. The detail work is incredible! The intensity in his eyes, his beard, his colorful all-weather garb, his boots, and many other fine points of detail!

The tag on the bottom indicates that this piece is from the 1999 Old Salts Collection Series.

This figurine stands approx. 4 ¼” tall x 4 7/8” wide x 6 ½” deep.

I cannot find any cracks/chips/scratches/etc. These figurines are supposed to replicate old mariners/sailors from another era – so they were made to look old and weathered. [Note: There is/was two pieces of twine (just twine) that simulated ropes that would be used to hold the door open when the cannon was fired. They were attached to eyelets and left in a pile on the ship’s deck. Over the years the fibers in the twine have disintegrated. I considered replacing the twine – but in the interest of collectability, I have decided to let the future owner of this figurine make that decision. It does not affect the figurine whatsoever – they were just pieces of twine. See pictures.]

Over the years we have alternately displayed some of these figurines in our smoke-free house – in other words, we rotated them.

Original box and original packing included. [On the front of the box there is a small tear/indent in the cardboard.]

[Note: I did not list the item as NEW – as I understand it, NEW applies to never out of the box. But this item is as close to new as possible – aside from a couple of dustings, it has never been touched - it has only been out of the box for display and photographs.]
