Antique or vintage cooking and kitchen equipment, and other items typically found in kitchens might conceivably be from the late 18th, early 19th century. Kitchenware, however, became gradually more widespread in the latter half of the 1800s as more and more houses had improved facilities – piped gas, running water and a separate room for cooking – soon after followed by the arrival of electricity in the home in the early 20th century. As homes became increasingly more efficient in the late 1960s and 1970s, redundant kitchen items were increasingly seen as decorative and collectable.
