Very often, people do not distinguish between antique and modern items made by antiques; and can not determine the value of the antiques.
Antiquarian (from latin: «Antiquarius» – one who belongs to the past) – a person who collects and studies antiquities or things from the past. This term is used for those who study history with special attention to antiques, archeological and historical sights. Antiques fans buy items for personal use, for a gift, for an investment or as a profit.
Antique (from latin:. «Antiquus» – an old) is a collector’s item that is usually made at least 100 years ago. Things have value because of their age, beauty, rarity, condition, utility, or other unique features. Antique things tend to show a certain level of skill and attention to design.
