Chorley’s was one of the earliest UK users of online bidding platforms. This technology combined with an increasing interest in 20th Century history has led to huge growth in the medals department. With detailed, well researched descriptions and good online images buyers can bid with confidence.

The demand for early European and Eastern weapons is strong with Ottoman and French bladed weapons being in most demand. 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! The Country House sale offers 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.
