We would like to introduce you to Frederik Gérard, Auctionata expert in Military Antiques.
Frederik Gérard's interest in antiques was sparked in his early youth. His father is a restorer of antique clocks and mechanisms and ran an antique shop together with a friend, where they traded various collector's items.
This led to Mr Gérard being interested in restoration and the most diverse techniques early on. A short time after leaving school, he started working as a restorer and seller in an antique shop in Bremen. Today he owns and operates his antiques store Gérard Antik (www.gerard-antik.de
By now, he looks back on a long career in the antique trade, which is the basis for his profound expertise and competence. His focus is primarily in the field of European militaria from the period 1800 - 1945.
His personal interest is U-boats of the German naval squadrons from the First and Second World War. Mr Gérard has his own extensive collection in this area, which is continually expanded and maintained.
Frederik Gérard lives and works in Bremen.
