Mystery Artillery Models

As part of the same joint purchase of a large number of vintage Rose Napoleonics castings, there were a large number of these artillery pieces, in two versions - with large wheels, and with smaller wheels.

There is also a British limber marked PL21 (which seems to be an original shop tag).

The guns are split trail, but don't seem to be realistic Gribeauval models. There are no trunnions moulded to the barrel, instead a wire is passed through a hole in the barrel. Does anyone know what these models are and who manufactured them?If so, please leave a comment below.
