Default WALLACE COLLECTION Oriental Room, London UK

For those who have not had a chance to see a Wallace Collection, here is a brief photo guide of it's splendid Oriental room. As evident by the quality and expert compilation of various weapons - it's a real treat for any collector. Needless to say, the Collection has an amazing array of European arms and armour (3 more rooms), paintings and other works of art. The arms in Oriental room are mostly Indian, but there are plenty of Persian, Turkish and some Caucasian specimens. Hope you'll enjoy the pictures. As you know the full catalogue is planned to be published, but it may be a while until done.

looks like they ran out of wall-paper by the ceiling, so had to cover it with something....
also, one of the most amazing blades on display....

Thanks for that!

Salaams Alex ~ Your pictures of the Wallace are superb and I hope you don't mind if I cross reference this thread to others for example the Kastane, Tulvar etc etc and by way of a thread bump.

Excellent photos. I know from experience that this isn't the easiest place to shoot due to the low light and reflections.

I'll take a look through my last set of photos and see if any I have compliment the above, although I fear the quality may not be comparable.

Regards

Steve

Default Steve Shimmer's Photo Set 1/2

Here's my first set. Sorry if I have posted some of these photos before, I belong to several forums and it's hard to keep track of which photos I've posted where!

As you can no doubt tell I have paid especial attention to the katars as they are one of my favourite weapons.
