Hermann Historica oHG Spring auction offers a wide variety from all collection fields of history and military history

MUNICH.- From 23 April to 4 May 2012 this year’s spring auction of the Hermann Historica oHG will take place, as usual with a wide range of high-quality offerings. Approximately 6800 lots from all areas of the auction house – antiquities, arms and armour, arts and crafts, hunting collectibles, orders as well as collectibles from history and military history – will be offered for bidding. Once again, rare and exceptional objects, thematically diversified and of high quality, are put up for auction in the antiquities catalogue. For instance, a set of silver phalerae from a magnificent bridle that can be subscribed to the northern Black Sea region and dates from the 4th/3rd century BC. The decorative ornamental discs with elaborate relief and made from sheet silver give striking proof of the artistry of early Thracian-Skythian craftsmanship with precious metal. A female deity, lions as well as gryphons
