Beginners who would like to be more knowledgeable about collectibles and antiques may find the following very helpful. The word antique is derived from the Latin word antiquus, which means ancient or old. The typical antique is a collectible that is 100 years old or more.
As defined by Wikipedia, antiques are considered desirable because of their “age, beauty, rarity, condition, utility, personal emotional connection, and/or other unique features. It is an object that represents a previous era or time period in human society…Antiques are usually objects that show some degree of craftsmanship – or a certain attention to design, such as a desk or an early automobile. They are bought at antique shops, estate sales, auction houses, online auctions, and other venues, or estate inherited.”
