Antique or vintage?

Glassware produced more than 100 years ago is classed as “antique” according to the 1930 Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act’s definition.

“Vintage” refers to pieces manufactured within the last 100 years and can include items made as recently as the 1980s.

Roundup pattern

Dugan's Roundup pattern is so named because of elements that are similar to the brands employed to mark cattle.
