perhaps it is ME!!!!

No I have some things from my parents including a dinner set with many, many extra items - dishes, coffee pot, tea pot, gravy bowl, soup terrine, etc etc that they brought with them from Europe, so that would be about 80 years old.,

I also have some other crockery they brought with them. I also have a diamond as my uncle was a jeweller in Europe and that is possibly around 90 years old!

Therefore I am not the oldest thing in my house!

OIh, I also have my grandfather's wedding ring which I wear so that would be even older than 80 years as he has been dead for over 50 years!

I have my great grandmother's wedding ring too. I think that must be from the 1920s as my grandmother was born in the 30s.
NO I can't beat your 2 replies here Finy, so I won't even try. If my mum was living with us, I could have said she was, as she'll be 97 in Nov '18, but she's in a nursing home. I do have 2 small paintings though, painted by my father's father, who died from cancer, aged 39 in 1913.

I have a dictionary that was published in the late 19th century.
Probably my mother's poetry book from primary school . . it is ninety years old.

I think it's a small manual pepper grinder. I didn't even use it.
We have a couple of old pieces of furniture, old coins, and some old jewellery. Not sure exactly how old the jewellery is, but some might have been handed down from generation to generation. We have an old solid marble mantle clock that has been passed to my father in law by a relative of C S Lewis. Somehow we are related to him. There are probably other things I have overlooked.
I have an Atlas which was used in Primary School in 1880
wow, you lucky thing! love old books

I found a long nail in my rose garden and my land lord told me it was hand made by his grandfather sometime in the late 1800's. It was very emotional to find such a personal item made with skills that have practically died out
Wow. That's great!

Exactly what you have in the main picture!

My garden is full of old wheels, and fence post's to give it that bush look of years gone by.

Really tiny diamonds from my Grandmother's engagement ring, from 1908.
I designed a new ring incorporating them, & two of my Mother's diamonds.
It will be my Grand-daughter's eventually.
I honestly don't know. But when my mother in law passed away we ended up with a lot of her old bits and pieces. And some of those bits and pieces were from her grandparent's (or older). So we have quite a bit of VERY old stuff sitting around (mostly in boxes).
Dinner sets and ornaments from my Great Grandparents
