Ah Ah,
That sexy one in the top left is not a so distant family member of my (Aljubarrota?) example.

Exactly, Fernando,

But while our Aljubarrota barrels are still of the Romanesque rounded form, this one has yet adapted the octagonal Gothic style and should, in my opinion, be correctly dated ca. 1400 to early 15th century - just like the Berne gun.
