Our Story

Welcome to Vintage World Australia.

We are an Australian owned and operated business based in Melbourne. We are an importer and wholesaler of an ever-growing range of handmade vintage style nautical & medieval themed gifts & home decor.

Our story started out as a passion project to sell nautical themed items made from brass in year 2015 in Melbourne.

Imported directly from more than 20 artisans in India, each of our items is handmade and is therefore utterly unique. Each and every one of our products truly is one-of-a-kind. We take extreme pride in the high quality of the products that we sell.

We are happy to say that our compasses, sundials, pocket watches, telescopes and clocks that we sell are all fully functional. It brings us the greatest joy to be able to say that our products aren’t just beautiful, but also practical.

Our full product range is available from our warehouse in Melbourne and from our online store. To see some of our bestsellers, click here. To read more about our company values and plans for the future, visit Our Values and Mission Statement pages.

Vintage World Australia

If you’re ever stuck for gift ideas, we are one of the best starting points you’ll find. From our full-sized decorative diving helmets and nautical themed table clocks through to items of a more personal nature, like our key chains and pocket watches, each item is handmade and truly unique.

Vintage World Australia prides itself on providing exceptional service and product quality. We are proud to be suppliers to many war and maritime museum shops across Australia and New Zealand.


All products on our website are reproductions, inspired by vintage and antique designs and made to closely match the originals. Each item is handmade by master artisans using often centuries old techniques and traditions. As they are handcrafted, no two items will be identical. Some natural variations and imperfections are inherent in the materials and construction processes used, making each item truly unique. In regards to our armour sets and warrior helmets, each reproduction is made by hand using the same techniques that were used centuries ago to make the original pieces. As such, these pieces naturally come in slightly different colours and sizes, and with some natural, unavoidable scratches and embellishments. These differences make these reproductions even more authentic, as no two sets of original armour were ever the same.
