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.

This Shop seller is currently away owing to a decidedly unplanned visit 'to' and stay 'in' hospital. Please add our Shop to your favourites so that you can visit again. We hope to be resuming normal service shortly. Best Wishes Diane & Stuart.

Update: Still in hospital but recovering slowly.

Recycled Materials & Packaging Costs

By employing a proportion of clean recycled materials we are able to subsidise new materials and keep the amount included in 'Postage & Packing to an overall nominal figure.
