Retro, Vintage or Antique?

Warwick Market sells everything from Retro ‘style’, Retro, Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Vintage and Antique items. It can be confusing as to what an items is classified! Nick, one of our stall holders summed it up for me. Antique is over 100 years old,  Art Nouveau is usually pre 1920’s, Art Deco 1920’s-1945, Vintage is 1940’s-1960’s, Retro is are for 1960’s-1980’s and Retro ‘style’ are modern reproduction of Retro/vintage things. The lines are blurred but that’s a rough guide according to Nick.
