Hi Friends,

 

During a short trip in Paris on 05-2004, I had a chance to visit Napoleon’s tomb located in Esplanade des Invalides, Paris. Over there, I also had chance to see many cannons and straightaway like these stuff so much. When I was young, I always made cannon by myself. The gun was made by aluminum pipe taken from outdoor TV antenna; the body was sawed from a piece of wood whereas the two-wheels were taken from another car-toy. Since then I am collecting mini liquor bottle, I especially felt in love with mini liquor bottle decorated as a cannon. Thus, I built up one separated page for this category. You can watch it by… click here. Updated by 07-2012, I have about 30 mini bottle cannons from 11 liquor producers, of which half of them are Courvoisier cannons. This cognac house claims “brandy of Napoleon”, thus, they have sure to go with Napoleon Cannon. I specially like those made by cast-iron, metal or bronze since they are heavy and solid like real. The oldest cannon I have collected so far, may be the wooden Courvoisier Cannon produced in 1930s. You are welcome to visit my site, comment, exchange information and trade.

 

Cheers
