His exhibition of Arms and Armour from the East will include a large consignment of Chinese and Tibetan daggers which will be shown alongside an impressive group of Tibetan, Chinese and Indian arms and armour.

Featuring in the show will be this trident from 18th/19th century Tibet, thought to have been made to be placed in the chapel of a protective deity, where arms and armour were often deposited as votive objects.

It is made of steel with applied gold and a contemporary blood-red wooden shaft and measures 17 in (43cm) long. The trident is priced at £36,000.
