Welcome to

the turl 

We sell an eclectic selection of antiques and collectables, from the Georgian period to the present day. We are constantly reviewing and increasing our stock which includes: silver and silver plated wares (including both Old Sheffield Plate and Electroplated items), glass, ceramics and small items of furniture, we also endeavour to find a selection of items from the many branches of the decorative arts.

Our aim is to offer interesting and exciting pieces throughout a wide price range. We hope you will enjoy perusing our pages, and invite you to browse through our everchanging stock and look forward to you becoming one of our regular and longstanding customers.

We ship worldwide and will always try to find the best and most cost effective way to ship your goods, and combine costs for multiple purchases. As our small contribution to the planet we use some recycled packaging, but only when it is fit for purpose.

The turl is named after our favourite street from our time at Oxford. It was a thriving place for purveyors of fine silver from the Middle Ages onwards and was almost equally famous for the QI club up until 2007. We trust you will find our shop QI too!

The store inventory is added to and updated almost daily so please call back regularly.

General Interest

If you are an overseas bidder please read this!

 The United States Department of Homeland Security is continuing to require increased security measures for items carried on passenger airlines. As a result, parcels entering the US from the UK, that would normally have been sent via passenger aircraft must now travel by other means, including ships and cargo. 

Our buyers are experiencing Air Mail delivery times to the US exceeding 6 weeks, other countries about 4 weeks.

This is much slower than we would all like it to be but this is absolutely out of my control. If you're not cool with this, please do not bid on this item.
