The trading standard, or perhaps a ‘purist’s’ definition of what is antique is an item that is more than 100 years old. Some believe items over 50 years old should be considered antique and some use an 80-year marker. It’s a hotly debated topic among dealers. New items become antiques every year as they grow older and older.

The majority of experts have agreed that items over 50 years old but less than 100 years old can be called vintage or collectible, but not antique. Old, but not that old. [1]
