Orders & Military Collectibles

There is hardly any field of interest as vast and inexhaustible as this one: Militaria. Our catalogues reflect this wide range containing a multitude of objects with military context - objects from almost all countries in the world, from orders and decorations to uniforms and equipment (including even service weapons, unless already contained in the catalogues “Firearms”), documents and photographs, be that pay books or army letters, certificates of appointment or autographs of prominent characters.

Chronologically, the catalogues start in the middle of the 1700s, which can be seen as a turning point in the production of military equipment towards standardized mass manufacturing. Well, this was not quite the first time - even the Romans had already some sort of standardized mass production, but items from this period are depicted in the catalogues “Antique Arms, Armour and Antiques”. The Militaria catalogues end more or less in the immediate past, with fascinating items such as a fighter jet’s ejection seat or the aiming device of a battle tank.

Geographically, there are no boundaries, from the armies of Norway to South Africa, from Australia to Chile. Special emphasis is placed on the major European powers, from Napoleonic France to tsarist Russia, from the German States to the Hapsburg monarchy.

Objects from Germany dating from 1919 to 1945 are not included in these catalogues. Therefore, check out our catalogues „Contemporary History“!
