What is an antique?

A list of items which are often associated with an antique is quite extensive, but this article is only meant to be a quick reference guide.

The word ‘antique’ has many meanings, including the most common, and for some it may be the only, one we are familiar with.

There are a number of categories of items, some of which are very familiar to us, such as the door knob, and a few which are more obscure.

Some items have very different uses, such a small antique bottle which is used to fill a wine glass or bottle, or an old tin of biscuits which has been used in the kitchen for many years.

It is important to remember that all items which were used by people of a certain age in the past will have the potential to be valuable and be worth much more than their current value.

It is a good idea to check with your local property owners, if you can, to see what they might have to offer.

The following items will be discussed in more detail in future articles.
