OUR ADMIRATION OF THE ANTIQUE

IS NOT ADMIRATION OF THE OLD,

BUT OF THE NATURAL.

ABOUT EQUINEAntiques

In recent years, adding antique or vintage furniture pieces to interiors has become a rising trend. With 2015 behind us, we’ve decided to dig up the most informative and inspiring antique blogs around the web.

Why do I collect? That’s easy… because it’s so much fun! Ever since I can remember I have been going to flea markets, antique shops, yard sales, you name it. Wherever I could find some sort of interesting treasure or cool piece of junk! I love driving around in search of new places or revisiting my favorite spots. I come from a family of collectors and have lived amongst antiques and collectibles my whole life. I have a passion for decorating especially with things that I find in my travels or even things found in the trash… which by the way can be some of the best stuff! But for those who share the same passion, I don’t have to tell you… you all know what fun it is and how addicting it can be! Here I will share my collections, interesting finds, decorating tips, photos, projects, friends collections and thoughts and whatever else I may find along the way.

A Haunted Antique

A haunting occurs when a ghost or other supernatural being refuses to move on after death, instead choosing to dwell among the living.
Read on to learn about one of the most haunted objects ever recorded in history.

Nicknamed “The Goddess of Death,” The Women from Lemb is a statue carved from pure limestone that was discovered in 1878 in Lemb, Cypruss. The item dates back to 3500 B.C., and is believed to represent a goddess, similar to a fertility idol. The statue was first owned by Lord Elphont, and within six years of having the statue in his possession, all seven of the Elphont family members had died from mysterious causes.

Both of the next two owners, Ivor Manucci and Lord Thompson-Noel, also died along with their entire families just a few short years after taking the statue into their homes.

The fourth owner, Sir Alan Biverbrook, died as well, along with his wife and two of their daughters. Two of Biverbrook’s sons remained, and though they weren’t big believers in the occult, they were scared enough by the sudden and strange deaths of four of their family members that they decided to donate the statue to the Royal Scottish Museum in Edinburgh, where it remains today.

Shortly after the item was placed in the museum, the chief of the section where the statue dwelled suddenly died as well, though no museum curator will admit that the statue may have supernatural properties. No one has handled the statue since that first museum worker who passed away, and the item is safely under glass and protected from human hands.

Just How Old Is an Antique

In purist terms, and according to the "official" definition issued by the United States Customs Service, antiques have traditionally been considered items with at least 100 years of age under their belts. That means the scale slides every year as more objects age to fit into that time frame.

However, the term antique is used rather loosely among the masses, and often ends up reflecting the age of the person using it more than a hard and fast definition. To a teenager, for example, a kitchen gadget from the 1960s seems “antique," while a senior adult might see antiques as the many objects they used or saw in the homes of their parents and grandparents as a child.
