I think it was in this museum that I saw the watch that stopped the bullet that did not kill Atatürk at the campaigns near the Marmara straights. Another curiosity was this set of chairs made up from arms.

I had the feeling it was more recent, and why mention "Christian"? Booty is booty, I'd say.

dear dick osseman
this furniture must be made from booty arms taken from christian warriors in maybe the 16.and17.centuries.as they seem precious,of course,it could be possible to find out who owned them and about the event when they got lost best wishes miguel
