Antique is a piece of furniture or work of art that has a high value because of its considerable age. Antique is an old item that collected and was used or designed more than 100 years ago. People wish to collect because of its age, beauty, rarity, condition, utility, personal emotional, etc. An antique is represented a previous era or time period in human society.
How many years old is considerable for a chair, a plate, a fan, or a clock be to warrant its being called an antique without anyone’s arguing the point?
Some people insist on a precise number of years, such as 80 or 100. The 80-year span is justified on the basis of two generations, each one generation is covering 40 years. Yet a watch that is only 75 years old is likely to look old-fashioned, and so perhaps it also is an antique.
An antique Item can be bought for personal display, gifts or for business dealing.
