Vintage is a style that brings back to life old, used items from the 20s to 70s. In turn, retro is new products that mimic the items from that period.
They may look old with scratches and signs of use, but they are not. The "look and feel" of vintage tableware is crucial here.
On the one hand, there is vintage crockery, which has the rustic stoneware character. On the other hand, there is porcelain tableware with detailed decorations in the popular "used look".
