Welcome to my online antiques shop . My name is Paul Thomas , hence the soubriquet Antiquetom.

My business is the supply of antique and nearly antique sterling silver trophies, trophy cups and covers , sterling silver loving cups and sterling silver goblets. All are in perfect condition . Most have no inscription and so are ready for your own dedication to be inscribed. Others are already inscribed with stories that may appeal . Have a look on the side menu to see if your passion is listed , be it winter sports or chess, military history or polo , fishing or horses , dogs , cats et al. Let me know if your particular passion is not listed and I will let you know when anything turns up that may be of interest.

In addition to the trophies and goblets mentioned , I carry a small range of antiques which are specific to various occupations, hobbies, pastimes , interests etc. So , if you want travelling communion sets , whist markers or unusual toast racks etc, please ask me as what you want may be sitting on the shelves . I tend to buy and enjoy for a while before offering for sale . the more pleasing the object the longer it sits on the shelves .

My business ethics are very simple . I will be straightforward with you . My descriptions are always accurate, especially on the condition , my packaging firm , adequate and strong , my responses immediate , and my belief in my stock most positive . I prefer to take back for a full refund any article that does not match my description . I have yet to have any item returned ; mind you , I have only been in this glorious business for 40 years , so there is time yet !

Postage , packing and my own "antiques in transit" insurance , arranged through Axa ,are all included in all prices for delivery to any worldwide destination.

My preferred payment method is by wire transfer in GB sterling from your bank direct to mine. Please ask for my codes. Cheques in sterling and drawn on English financial houses are also acceptable . Please note that I do not accept credit / debit cards .

Good luck in your life , regards Paul Thomas
