Early gun rack dating from mid-19th Century. It is stamped on the metal collar twice: 67.The metal is tarnished but functional. The top collar is covered with leather which is very old and disintegrating. The collar opens to allow the rifles to be taken out and closes to store them. There is a metal plate on top with three hooks possibly to hang swords.
The post is solid and appears to have been painted much later. The top of the post has painted on it: 14 M.Possibly 14th regiment, M company. The last picture shows a 19th century gun rack in a museum. Very similar to this one. The rack is approximately 52 x 22 x 22 and 40 lbs.
