English Art Deco Chrome and Black Vitrolite Bofors Gun Desk Model/Paperweight

About

This very elegant English Art Deco styled desk model/paperweight of a WWII deck mounted anti-aircraft gun would seem to be loosely based on the Bofors 40mm. It is beautifully made in chrome plated steel and even includes the Bofors' signature flared flash guard muzzle to the barrel. The gun itself swivels through 360 degrees with the barrel being able to move up and down. The Bofors sits on a black Vitrolite base with chamfered edges. The condition is excellent with no loss to the original chrome finish and no chips, scratches or cracks to the Vitrolite base.
