    I would say the oldest thing in my home is an old globe which I have had for 20 years.

    Probably a cast iron pan donated to me from my nan, it's about 60 years old. They just don't make them like that anymore!

    I have a couple of GWR station lamps, don't know how old. Photo of my dad as a small child so pre WWII, picture of my grandad in army uniform when he was conscripted to fight in WWII.

    Older than all of that would be some penny red stamps from the reign of Queen Victoria.

    Oh, and fragments of a broken painted glass jar unearthed in the garden of my old house when the previous owners had an extension built that is many centuries old.
