We are all used to throwing away furniture, shoes or toys after a couple of years of using them. These days that seems fairly normal. However, some of us still have some rarities that in spite of the purchase date do not seem old at all. The items presented in the gallery below are indestructible. They have no ‘best before’ date!
#1 These boots have been worn for twenty years. They look as if they had been bought yesterday
#2 This rice cooking pot is 25 years old. It was a wedding present
#3 This frying pan survived a house fire in 1920. It is still used in the kitchen
