Any household appliance bought these days never lasts more than a couple of years. They are all designed to serve their purpose just for some time. Unlike the things designed some time ago.
The collection below contains items the owners take so much pride in.
#1 An old-school meat mincer machine. Fifty years ago almost every kitchen would have one
#2 The first model of washing machine in Eastern Europe. You can still find a few fully operational ones!
#3 Our grandmothers remember this one for sure. Who knows, maybe one or two still use it…
#4 The most popular Mercedes model 30 years ago. Today quite a lot can be still seen on the roads!
#5 This set of pots was bought in the 1970’s. Doesn’t it still look good?
#6 A Waterman fountain pen well over 100 years old
#7 This electric cooker was made in the 1920’s and… it is said to… work!
#8 ‘This fur coat was worn by my granddad 50 years ago, when he was just a boy. And now he has handed it over to me.’
#9 ‘This chest has been with our family since 1682.’
#10 The flask on the left was used on regular basis from 1970 to 2018
#11 ‘Me in 1981, my son in 2017 and my daughter in 2020.’

#16 It looks factory new but in fact it was made in the 1950’s
#17 ‘According to the owner , this frying pan is over 80 years old. I bought a similar one in a supermarket. It lasted three years…’

#19 ‘A refrigerator bought by my grandmother during WWII.’
#20 The oldest pair of jeans ever to have been found. It was discovered in a closed gold mine in USA. It is 136 years old. What must be pointed out here, however, is the fact that it hasn’t been worn much since then.
