An antique, an old item, quite often furniture, collected or sought-after because of its age, finery, rarity, craftsmanship, unique features perhaps and conceivable value though not necessarily so. The term 'antique' is frequently used for both antique and vintage items, such as Clarice Cliff from the 1930's for instance. This notwithstanding and some exception internationally, we can otherwise typically say that an object 100 years old or more is antique. Largely focusing on Art, Objet d'art and Collectables, however, some headings or categories here, Art, Art deco, Ceramics and Memorabilia for example, might fit into more than one grouping or type regardless whether 100 years old or not.
