Many people are unaware of how expensive and rare some old stuff is. Vintage or antique furniture, paintings, sculptures, etc, can be very expensive. The cost of such stuff depends upon artist/manufacturer, creation, source and most importantly, age and rarity. Try to visit an antique store, and you'll find stuff like dolls, toys, coins, vinyl records, furniture and you can hardly get out of the shop without purchasing anything.

FAQs

Q: How can I identify antiques?

Ans:

You need your knowledge to identify whether an item is a vintage, antique, or just a replica. Sometimes, documents also depict the age of the item, but if you've got no evidence for the item's age, then either your knowledge or an expert can help you out. You can earn a huge profit if you sell such antique items.

Q: What is considered vintage furniture?

Ans:

Furniture ageing minimum of 20 years is vintage. Within the vintage category, furniture belonging to the 1950s-1980s era is generally considered retro. Such stuff won’t cost you a lot to bring to your Indian antique store.

Q: How does an antique differ from a vintage?

Ans:

Antique is something 100 years old, while stuff below a hundred years old (before 1999) is called vintage. Sometimes, vintage may sell at higher costs in antique shops in India than antique because numerous other factors decide the cost, aside from the age of the item.

Q: When can we call something an antique?

Ans:

An item is classified as an antique when it gets a minimum of 100 years old. If something was made in 1920, then by 2020, it will be called antique. There's a steep rise in the cost of such stuff when they cross the 100 years age limit. You can sell these items in your antique shop in India.
