   Antiques are usually objects which show some degree of craftsmanship, or attention to design. Desks or early automobile are good examples. They are purchased, passed down as an estate item, or "discovered".

    Some valuable antiques can be bought from antique dealers and auction services or purchased online through websites and online auctions. Antique dealers are often members of national trade associations, many of which themselves belong to CINOA, a confederation of art and antique associations across 19 countries, representing 5000 dealers.
