Arms, Armour & Sporting Guns

From Viking long swords to Al Capone’s revolver, Christie’s Arms and Armour auctions span many centuries of world history. With pieces from Eastern and Western Europe, the US, Asia, Africa and the Far East, the category is truly global, reflecting the demand of our international collectors. Our sales offer a range of edged weapons and armour, antique and modern firearms from classic British names such as Purdey and Holland & Holland, as well as militaria.

Auctions are held twice a year at our South Kensington saleroom, and selected pieces can also be found in mixed-category sales such as European Noble & Private Collections, Out of the Ordinary and single-owner sales across London, Paris and New York. If you are interested in buying or selling arms and armour with Christie’s, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
