The 1970's seems like yesterday to us, but to a paperweight collector under the age of 30 it would be considered vintage, if not antique - so God knows what they'd make of us 50 somethings!
I only consider the 19th century weights to be antique, and up to 1960 vintage, although in the case of weights like Strathearn and Vasart, the early days can be said to be vintage as per the maker.
In the case of 1980's and 90's paperweights, they're what I'd call contemporary.
And if I were a paperweight I'd be considered vintage. :oops: :wink:
