42 pieces of armor, from helmets to chest armor and shields, this section features a plethora of history. Armor from the 16th century is represented by a Burgonet helmet and Morion, which was the most worn helmet type of the 16th and 17th centuries.

Elaborately decorated rare historical firearms such as flintlock weapons of museum quality are set to feature. In the early 17th century, the flintlock closed down the matchlock as a trigger mechanism for firearms, as it was more weatherproof and therefore a more reliable weapon.

The flintlock was replaced by percussions in the early 19th century such as this model with an ebony handle which was made in the mid 19th century in London.

Hunting weapons will be included such as this early 17th century crossbow and a sword-gun combination, probably made in the 18th century in the central Russian town of Tula.

Sabres, swords, daggers and shashkas make for interesting pieces. Swords from the Ottoman empire as well as Germany will be sure to excite collectors.
