"The Vintage Artillery Works that Really Works & is Safe!"
BIG-BANG® Cannons are made by The Conestoga Company, Inc., which has been based in the Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania, since its founding in 1912.
In continuous production since 1912, the BIG BANG® was invented by a Lehigh University professor in 1907 and was originally made of glass to illustrate the safe process which could generate a "BIG BANG" - without the breaking glass! The were so popular that soon they were produced in cast iron as they are today.

The 10FC JUNIOR FIELD CANNON was first introduced in 1935 and has remained in production today. It is manuctured in the same in style and finish as the 15FC Major Field Cannon, but is slightly smaller in size at 17 inches long. The 10FC Junior field cannon also has the same automatic loading system, which makes firing the cannon a breeze.
