Cranston, RI, USA, July 15, 2022 — Bruneau & Co.’s Summer Historic Arms & Militaria auction, planned for Thursday, July 21st, at 6 pm Eastern time, is loaded with over 300 lots of historic objects dating from the late 18th century forward, with a highlight on World Wars I and II, plus rare uniforms from a private collection. This is an online sale; no live bidding.

This will be the fourth Historic Arms & Militaria auction for Bruneau & Co., in the recently formed Arms & Militaria department headed up by director Joel Bohy, a seasoned veteran of the arms and militaria scene. “It’s been some time since I’ve seen some of these arms in this condition and quality,” he said. “This is a great opportunity to pick up some rare items.”

Kevin Bruneau, the company’s president and an auctioneer, added, “Having read about and watched movies and TV series about Word War II for years, it has been a pleasure handling and learning more about some of the historic uniforms, equipment and arms we’re offering in this sale. For me it helps bring more of an understanding of what our forefathers went through and what they carried during their military service. Now collectors can own these pieces of history.”

The catalog is packed with military antiques and historic arms curated from estates across the country. Lot #1 is a British pattern 1788 light dragoon saber and scabbard, from circa 1788 (est. $500-$700). The blade is 35 ¾ inches long and the overall length is 40 ¾ inches. Few examples of Britain’s first regulation pattern light dragoon saber survive with their original scabbard.
