Antiques Directory

“Our admiration of the antique is not admiration
of the old, but of the natural.”

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

An antique is technically something that is over one hundred years old, although cars are an exception. There is even a law, the 1930 Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act, that concerns itself with antiques.

The ISOOSI Antiques directory has been created to provide a wealth of information to lovers of this fascinating subject.

We have collated a huge variety of useful advice, opinion and resources built around the subject of antiques, we hope you like it.

It sees an antique as; "Works of art (except rugs and carpets made after the year 1700), collections in illustration of the progress of the arts, works in bronze, marble, terra cotta, parian, pottery, or porcelain, artistic antiquities and objects of ornamental character or educational value which shall have been produced prior to the year 1830."

While the modern interpretation of an antique is somewhat more flexible than that, it does show our continued interest in objects from our past.

If you have such an interest, this is the category for you.
