Do the terms vintage and antique have the same meaning?
Most authorities consider the term 'antique' to mean an age of at least 100 years. If an item is not definitively datable to 100 or more years in age, it should not be directly referred to as an antique.
The term 'vintage' is applicable to a wider variety of objects, including items that may or may not be antique.
As a general rule, vintage should not be used in reference to an object less than 20 years old, and the object should be somewhat representational and recognizable as belonging to the era in which it was made.
