Should LG update definition of Vintage & Antique « on: March 25, 2019, 02:14:44 PM » Author: Roi_hartmann
In forum boards, Vintage & Antique is defined being pre 1979. In 2005 when LG was established that was minimum of 26 years old. Nowadays it's 40 years old. What do you think should it be changed like 1989 or something as the years have gohe by? I think this would make sense especially now as led has basically replaced most of the old light sources in new installations.

Depending on what the item is i think some lamps / fittings made right up to 2005/6 time can be vintage.  Ive seen tubes made in 1990s/2000s  posted and referred to as vintage largely due to them no longer being manufactured or manufactured for a short period. For instance a millennium neon lamp that was made for the year 2000 i class those as vintage / antique now

I' say i agree, especially since recently our beloved incandescent, flourescent, and HID'S are being systematically snuffed out by the evil LED Army !

I agree that the Vintage & Antique sections definitions should be updated due to how much time has past however I disagree classifying newer but rare lamps as vintage/antique considering the definition of antique is generally something over 100 years old, and the definition of vintage is generally considered something 20 years or older.

Exactly 20  years ago it would be March 29th 1999 (Vintage)
Exactly 100 years ago it would be March 29th 1919 (Antique)

Modern definitions would have to be transitioned to "2000 - Present"



As much as it seems strange to consider stuff from the 90s Vintage, based on a quick bit of research I've come to the conclusion that twenty years old is widely considered "Vintage"
