Thank you for taking the time to view my auction. I have been a fanatical collector of Western European Arms and Armor from the 15th - 17th century for 35 years. I travel to small villages and out of the way cities in Europe often in search of pieces that most collectors can only dream of. Since I can't keep them all (or I upgrade a piece in my collection) over the years I have amassed a lengthy list of museums and collectors of impeccable taste that I sell to almost exclusively. Many of these top collectors also rely on me to sell their "trade ins". Since I am a collector and I do not consider myself a professional dealer my prices are usually the lowest world wide.
If your a beginner or advanced collector you have come to the right place.
Here are a few important things you should keep in mind:
– Arms and Armor is the most undervalued art in the world. You do not need to be rich in order to have a good collection.
– Up to 90% of the pieces you see advertised on Ebay and even the major auction houses in Europe are fakes, reproductions, mis-cataloged or composite (put together from different non-original pieces or parts)!!! Many of these "non-period pieces" were made over 100 years ago during the Victorian/Historimus era (turn of the century Arms and Armour revival) they have age and old-school workmanship and I'll tell you right now most collectors cannot tell them apart!
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Only the best,
