Is the item an Antique, Vintage or Retro?

An Antique is an old collectable item. Collected and desirable due to its age, beauty, rarity, condition, utility, personal emotional connection, and other unique features. It is an object that represents a previous era or time period in human society. Very important – an item should be at least 100 years old to be defined as an antique!
On the other hand, if the item is no older than an antique but not less than 20 years, it falls under the term Vintage.
Lastly, Retro is a style that is consciously derivative or imitative of trends, modes, or fashions of the recent past. Retro items do not have to be old, they can be brand new, but would have to be made in the style of the time or item they are replicating.
