Militaria, Edged Weapons and Guns
A Ships flag, sold for £300 (minus the staff!)
This market remains very strong. Collectors are now able to find their favourite pieces at our specialist auctions and we often sell lots for well above their retail value. We have always had a keen interest in this subject, which is not every auctioneer’s cup of tea. As a result, with our expert knowledge, we are able to quickly research and value lots placing them in our regular specialist auctions. With a loyal following too from bidders around the world, and especially from one particular Russian internet bidder, we achieve some exceptional prices such as a 19th century presentation Shamshir sword, which we sold for £12,500. All of our auctions use live internet bidding platforms to ensure that every lot, whether it is worth £20 or £500,000, reaches the widest possible market and sells for the best price possible. In the run up to an auction we receive 100’s of emails requesting further information for lots in the sale. Attached to these email replies, we regularly send well over 1,000 digital images, such is the huge interest generated in our auctions.
