SAN GIORGIO ASTE, ANTIQUE ARMS AND MILITARIA, DEC 8TH, 9TH

posted by editor@armsandarmoruauctions.com at 2016-11-21 11:23:00


San Giorgio’s December sales included many fine pairs of pistols. Pictured on the cover is a luxurious pair by Vergnies in Marseille, with silver gilt mounts and wire inlay. The motifs include naval elements so they may have been a presentation to an ottoman admiral.  A cased set of six ivory stocked pistols are also offered. Among the other pairs in the sale  are wheelock, percussion and flintlock guns some with unusual breech loading mechanisms.

In the long arms offered are several unusual Sardinian muskets, a Brescian flintlock folding carbine and a fine back action percussion cased shotgun by Merdy in Dijon as well as several Colt’s and Winchesters and an early and important military matchlock wallgun C. 1500.  Among the armour lots are an armet and an Italian close helm and among the eastern are a fine yatagan, a very good khula khud, a Persian  ivory hilted khanjar, a fine sipar shield and an Ottoman coat of mail.
