Buy what you like and be happy with that piece of art and hope that it will hold its value. How old do antiques and collectibles need to be to be considered antiques? It’s not a cut and dry answer.

 

According to the U.S. Customs Service, an antique is an item with at least 100 years of age under its belt.

From a personal standpoint, I see the dividing line drawn where styles dramatically changed from a old-fashioned look toward modern appeal. Of course, you can ask a dozen different antiques “experts” what an antique is and you’ll get number of different answers.

With this in mind, I view items made prior to the early 1940s as antiques and newer pieces as “collectibles.” But what if we are considering authentic pieces from long past empires? To my view anything authentic to any of this past away behemoths is an antic without time considerations. Austria, Turkey, Russia… The antique scale slides in terms of the actual age of these objects as we continue to move forward through the calendar.
