Many people get confused with the words Vintage and Antique.
Vintage means "of the period" and not necessarily a particular number of years old. You can have a 2007 Vintage wine, for example. In General, the word Antique means 100 years old.
And that varies in categories. In the ART category, an antique is pre 1900 while in the collectible category under clocks an antique is pre 1930.
We honest dealers can only give our best estimate and judgment as to the items age, condition and value. For hundreds more Antiques & Collectibles, Check out my other store Popeye's Playground.
