chorley's auctions selling buying modern art and design including oil paintings, furniture, sculpture, objects and silver and jewellery

medals, arms & armour


The demand for early European and Eastern weapons continues to be strong.

Ottoman and French bladed weapons are in high demand and body armour is as popular as ever - a German breast plate and helmet being more popular than a rather rusty 19th Century suit of armour.

Our Country House auctions offer intending purchasers the opportunity to buy items not seen for years and buyers of Militaria are no exception.

Boxed uniforms, both dress and field are unearthed from attics where they have been languishing for years and these, together with the original regimental dress swords appear regularly in our auctions.
