posted by editor@armsandarmoruauctions.com at 2018-05-29 10:05:00


As typical, Czernys June 9th  sale of arms and armour includes some of the most sumptuously decorative and historically important lots to be offered to collectors this year. Pictured is a fabulous  Ottoman 19th C agate hilted and silver mounted Kandshar dagger. Other significant edged weapons in the sale include a Russian award sword with Japanese blade from the Russo-Japanese conflict in 1905, a gold hilted Kard with rubies, emeralds and diamonds, a superb and early Pata gauntlet sword with extensive gold decoration, and Austrian silver mounted "luxury" sabre with blue and gilt blade and a late 17th C. basket hilted Polish sabre.

Among the firearms offered is a highly decorative flintlock rifle from the estate of Baron Von Beulwitz with a 1663 dated barrel. Among the other fine guns in the sale is a beautiful German 17th C Tschinke with extensive inlay, an important work of art.  Fine pairs of pistols will also be crossing the block, with wheellock, snaphaunce, flintlock  percussion and breech loading examples to choose from. Other lost of interest in the sale include an early European fighting shield dating between the 11th and 14th centuries, a fully equipped WWII period battle Jeep and a highly unusual flintlock pistol with integral lantern, ancipating the laser sight!
