Auction Description

We are delighted to present this unique and highly curated collection of one-of-a-kind European military and naval antiques. Highlights include a remarkable battery of eight consecutively numbered 18th century German miniature cannons, an impressive matched pair of large Continental Manor House iron cannons on wheeling carriages, and a one-of-a-kind, wall-mounted panoply of 19th century English bayonets.  The collection features a highly detailed and realistic sterling silver presentation figure of a British officer on horseback, a very high quality set of sterling silver pepper casters in the form of 12 gauge shotgun shells in their original leather presentation case, a unique silver-plated Crimean War-themed desk set, and a one-of-a-kind trophy from the Mesopotamian Campaign of 1915.  Also offered is a museum-quality cased set of "Aeroplane Darts" from the First World War, considered the first aerial bombs, as well as a highly documented and unique Royal Navy Admiralty Pattern diving helmet wall-mounted display board.
