About Us

My name is Tony Willis. May I welcome you to Alban Arms & Armour Ltd.

The businessĀ  has evolved from my lifelong interest in antique arms and armour. During this time I have been drawn to antique weapons and related objects dating mainly to before the middle of the 19th century. This interest started as a collector and gradually developed into a commercial enterprise, which has been established for over 30 years, and is now one of the main purveyors of antique arms and armour in the UK. We have an established international reputation and ship all over the world. I live in the United Kingdom with my wife Frances who is my partner in this undertaking. We are privileged to work with a valued network of support service providers including leading academics and specialist shippers.

Over the years I have written and presented articles and papers on various subjects which have been published in specialist arms and armour related periodicals and journals. It has given me great satisfaction to source and place some rare artifacts with private individuals, major collections and national museums. We are proud to say that we have built long term relationships with our customers based upon mutual respect and trust. We are pleased that we continue to help people that we have known for many years to build their collections that have matured asĀ  our business has grown.

All that we have for sale is thoroughly researched and every item is guaranteed as authentic and as described. Whilst this website is primarily concerned with selling antique arms and armour, we will always be interested in hearing from you should you wish to explore selling your own collection, or individual items.
