Antique Militaria

Antique Militaria Dealer [UK]


Welcome to my website.

I buy and sell all kinds of military antiques: swords, daggers, handguns, long guns, bayonets and general militaria (badges, belt buckles, etc). The date period spans 17th to 20th century and occasionally an earlier item turns up. My specialist interest is in 18th to 20th-century European (including British) military swords, principally Austrian, French and German items. However, I also handle civilian smallswords and hunting hangers.

On the firearm side, I am particularly interested in 19th-century British and American percussion revolvers and licence-exempt cartridge pistols, eg pinfire, rimfire, etc. On the bayonet side, I always have a reasonable selection of 20th-century German Mauser items in stock, as well as a smaller selection of British bayonets. As for militaria, I have a stock of Napoleonic period British military buttons, as well as later British items. Furthermore, I stock some elements of 3rd Reich uniforms, eg belts and buckles, cloth headdress and dress swords and dirks.

I am a member of the London Arms & Armour Society, the Marylebone Pistol and Rifle Club, and have been trading in antique arms and militaria since 1970 - in London's West End until December 2008, and since that time mainly from my website and at the biannual London Antique Arms Fairs, held at the Hotel Ibis London in April and September.

I acted as a consultant to Bonhams (auctioneers) in the 1990s and have sold many antiques to important museums, including: the Tower of London (Royal Armouries); the National Army Museum, London; the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; the Hoffburg Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City; the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, California.
