Vintage Object For Sale on 1stDibs

At 1stDibs, there are many versions of the ideal vintage object for your home. Each vintage object for sale was constructed with extraordinary care, often using metal, glass and ceramic. There are 2644 variations of the antique or vintage vintage object you’re looking for, while we also have 20 modern editions of this piece to choose from as well. There are many kinds of the vintage object you’re looking for, from those produced as long ago as the 18th Century to those made as recently as the 21st Century. A vintage object, designed in the Mid-Century Modern, Modern or Art Deco style, is generally a popular piece of furniture. Many designers have produced at least one well-made vintage object over the years, but those crafted by Cenedese, Scheurich Keramik and Opaline florence are often thought to be among the most beautiful.

How Much is a Vintage Object?

Prices for a vintage object can differ depending upon size, time period and other attributes — at 1stDibs, they begin at $15 and can go as high as $45,000, while the average can fetch as much as $679.

Finding the Right Decorative Objects for You

Every time you move into a house or an apartment — or endeavor to refresh the home you’ve lived in for years — life for that space begins anew. The right home accent, be it the simple placement of a decorative bowl on a shelf or a ceramic vase for fresh flowers, can transform an area from drab to spectacular. But with so many materials and items to choose from, it’s easy to get lost in the process. The key to styling with decorative objects is to work toward making a happy home that best reflects your personal style. 

Ceramics are a versatile addition to any home. If you’ve amassed an assortment of functional pottery over the years, think of your mugs and salad bowls as decorative objects, ideal for displaying in a glass cabinet. Vintage ceramic serveware can pop along white open shelving in your dining area, while large stoneware pitchers paired with woven baskets or quilts in an open cupboard can introduce a rustic farmhouse-style element to your den.

Translucent decorative boxes or bowls made of an acrylic plastic called Lucite — a game changer in furniture that’s easy to clean and lasts long — are modern accents that are neutral enough to dress up a coffee table or desktop without cluttering it. If you’re showcasing pieces from the past, a vintage jewelry box for displaying your treasures can spark conversation. Where is the jewelry box from? Is there a story behind it?

Abstract sculptures or an antique vessel for your home library can draw attention to your book collection and add narrative charm to the most appropriate of corners. There’s more than one way to style your bookcases, and decorative objects add a provocative dynamic. “I love magnifying glasses,” says Alex Assouline, global vice president of luxury publisher Assouline, of adding one’s cherished objects to a home library. “They are both useful and decorative. Objects really elevate libraries and can also make them more personal.”

To help with personalizing your space and truly making it your own, find an extraordinary collection of decorative objects on 1stDibs.
