I still don’t know who made this model or for what purpose, but I’ve now been able to examine it in detail. There are no marks that I can find. The model was made to a level of detail I don’t often see. The breech band is a separate piece, as in full-size. The Navy-type shark-jaw cascabel is actually three pieces, the largest one being the forked extension of the tube, 2nd. Is the filler piece that closes the circular breeching-rope opening, and the 3rd piece is the vertical pin holding the latter in place. The bronze firing lock is only about 1/2 x 3/4 inch but is an exact, if tiny, replica of the original.
