It's really a bit of a mystery. Asked the owner of the stall where I found it and all he knew was that it had come from a large collection in a deceased estate. Nothing else. To me it LOOKS a bit Spanish just going by the decoration but that's about it. As mentioned above it is VERY heavy and solidly cast so it seems unlikely that it's a movie prop. It's also scientifically authentic in construction, with those three bracing girdles around the end of the barrel to resist the stress of firing.
