We currently work on naval guns, which have been constantly evolving during the XVII and XVIII century. The gun design has been standardized by the marine ministry through main regulations dated 1758, 1766,1778 and 1786. Each "règlement" defines different sizes and weight for a gun of a given caliber.
As of today, we propose :
- the complete set of guns (2£ , 3£, 4£, 6£, 8£, 12£, 18£, 24£, 36£) of the 1758 regulation based on documents from the hand of Jean Maritz. This artillery is designed without marks of the forge and ironmaster (trunnion), nor marks of foundry date, weight and gun number (on the base ring). It can however be added upon demand (marks were mandatory only after 1766),
- the main guns of 1766 regulation (8£ 18£ 36£) as presented in Mr Boudriot's book "vaisseau de 74 canons",
We will work on the 1766 artillery based on Jean Maritz documents and 1786 artillery shortly.
We have also dedicated some categories for specific vessels. We currently provide parts for :
- Vaisseau de 74 canons (Sané's drawings- 1780),
- Bomb ketch la Salamandre,
- Frigate "La belle poule" (1765),
