Etching on Arms and Armour
Arms and armour decorated with etching belong to the most desired and valued pieces. These can be regarded as works of art, often exhibited in the context of the Kunst- and Wunderkammer
(cabinet of curiosities) of the Renaissance period. For me it is a particular pleasure to present a selected group of objects decorated with this interesting technique in our new catalogue,
which are made for both ceremonial purposes and field use. Each one is of distinguished quality, rarity and condition alike, coming from prominent provenances, among them the collection of Lord Astor of Hever,
the Royal House of Hanover and the Bavarian Electoral Court in Munich.
This catalogue is exclusively available as a free PDF document.
