Many people like things that smell brand new and can be unwrapped from plastic, meaning in reality, they just add to pollution of our planet. But some people specifically prefer the items that have been touched by history and are commonly referred to as antiques.
Antique objects often bear an extra value thanks to their aesthetic or historical significance, and they can be defined as any object which is at least 100 years old. Meanwhile, vintage and collectibles are described as items that are “younger” than that.
And while some are born antique aficionados, real collectors spend their entire lives learning the subtleties of this miscellaneous profession. Below are some of the most incredible examples of antique objects and goods posted on the r/Antiques subreddit, where every member of the community is an antique dealer at heart.
