About us


Snaphaunce.com was created to offer a new service to collectors of antique arms and armour. The site brings together top quality antiques from dealers from across the world. By only displaying items from reputable dealers we protect collectors from the pitfalls of some other auction type websites.

Our central priority is creating and maintaining a reputation for quality antiques, accurately described, and sold with unparalleled customer service.
If you are looking for antique arms or armour fresh to the market, Snaphaunce is the place to visit.

Matt Nunn and Keith Petts, as well as being established in the antiques trade, have seven years’ experience in running Fleaglass.com, the successful website for science antiques collectors. Now working alongside John Hansord, with his specialist knowledge of fine antique arms and armour, we offer this new service to both collectors and dealers.

Information about each of the Snaphaunce dealers can be found on the Snaphaunce Dealers page.

More information about this website can be found in our FAQs.
