About us

On this site, we offer for sale selected pieces from the collection of our late father, Karl Willy Schroeter. The main focus of this collection is on naval antiques from the Napoleonic Age. Our father’s favorite pastime was restoration and giving things a proper ‘frame’; Thus, you will find some items that have recent components, like 18th century cannons with 20th century carriages. We seek to pass these things on to people who share our father’s passion.
