Difference between Antique and Vintage Chairs

Antique
Antique chairs look captivating and at times intricate, and are prized for age and rarity. If you want authentic antiques, you may ask for purchase receipts to verify that they belonged to someone famous. Otherwise, you can even get the product accessed by the expert. Always remember, antiques are usually at least 100 years old. Take a look at the Hooker Furniture Corsica Oval Back Chair Side Chair here.

A thing can be vintage even if it is less than 100 years old, but is very unique, with limited availability, making it valuable or prized. Take a look at this beautiful Italian Heritage Vintage Chair below.

Many times shop keepers have antiques without realizing what they have. However, there is a possibility that the product is of lower quality.

Antique Stores
These are some special antiques selling shops. Be careful to check whether they're selling antiques or are just a second-hand store. Usually, a true antique store will have higher prices. Have a look at this Italian Heritage Bow Chair below.
