Thomas Del Mar: 25 Blythe Road – Antique Arms and Armour Auctions

Thomas Del Mar

Thomas Del Mar has been living locally with his family for eight years. Having run the Antique Arms, Armour and Militaria department at Sotheby’s for 10 years, he started his own company in 2005. Two years later, he discovered in Olympia an old post office that had been closed down which he then converted and so founded 25 Blythe Road, the specialist auctioneer house.

His next auction is on the 29th June which will include objects spanning 3,500 years, comprising armour from Warwick Castle, a spear from the Vienna arsenal, partisans carried by the Yeoman Guard of our Kings and Queens William & Mary, Anne, George III and Victoria, the contents of a European Princely Armoury and related items such as gun powder flasks, saddles, caparisons, stirrups, and a spectacular display of miniature to life size cannon and other artillery.

Thomas Del Mar Ltd has recently published the book ‘Armour of the English Knight 1400 – 1450’ written by Tobias Capwell, curator of arms and armour at the Wallace Collection.

About Editor

Online editor at Keep Things Local


The company publishes four flagship magazines (Chelsea Locals, Chiswick Locals, Richmond Locals and Hammersmith Locals) with more launches planned in London and across the UK. The prime focus of each of these quarterly magazines is to showcase and support the independent traders and small businesses who do so much to give these areas their individual retail character and community spirit. This is achieved through dedicated advertorials which are written, designed and photographed by an experienced team lead by Neil McKelvie.

In every issue, these advertorials are complemented by feature articles which turn the spotlight on different aspects of neighbourhood life and interviews with notable local figures.In addition to appearing in the magazines, every advertorial is also published in the Keep Things Local newsletters, on the website and on social media. Get in touch to be featured in our Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring issues.
