Antiques and vintages are items that belong or existed in earlier times. The difference between an antique and a vintage item is simple. Antiques are typically at least 100 years old. Vintage items, on the other hand, are characterized by maturity (pre-dating 1965 and has crossed generations), excellence (well-made with attention to detail and quality), and enduring appeal (its appeal endures long after its intended function has become obsolete).
