New Finished Artwork
Part of my collection of old books. Some of these are more than 100 years old, but most are not. I always look up the ones I’m not sure about, to see if they’re worth anything. After all, I don’t want to cut up a book that belongs on Antiques Roadshow!

According to Antique HQ:
There is a debate over what makes an antique an antique. The definition of an antique is “An object of considerable age valued for its aesthetic or historical significance”. An antique does not become an antique until it meets the age requirement of 100 years or older. … The term vintage originally applied to bottles of wine. For example this is a 1915 vintage red wine. This term was poached and used as a general term. Vintage is now applied to anything that is less than 25 years old or have cycled back into fashion. However this is generally applied to the era of 1960 – 1979.
So there you have it. I’m not going to belabor the point any further, because in regards to my work, it really doesn’t matter. How something looks is far more important to me than how old it is.
