An original prop used in the production of Flash Gordon, the 1980 science fiction picture directed by Mike Hodges.
This is an original cannon as seen used by the Hawkmen in various scenes of the movie notably by Brian Blessed as Prince Vultan in the climactic battle sequence. The large weapon is constructed from fibreglass and features a long barrel with a distinctive design to include sculpted feathers to the underside, handle to the top, trigger to the side and sight to the front, this finished in black and gold.
The prop measures an impressive 37" in length with a 6" diameter barrel and 12" across the widest point, it remains in good vintage original condition exhibiting some paint chipping and damage to the handle with the tip of the sight missing having clearly seen heavy use during the production.
An extremely rare and highly displayable artefact from this cult science fiction classic.
