Dream meaning of antique

To see antiques in your dream represent your time honored values, tradition, wisdom and inherited personal characteristics. It symbolizes something genuine or proven. Certain things in your past are worth holding onto or worth keeping.

If you do not like or appreciate antiques, then is suggests that you are moving away from outdated childhood conditioning or old modes of thinking.

On a negative note, you may be discarding or rejecting something of value that you should really be embracing and heeding.

The age of an object confers upon it an additional significance which eventually becomes more important than the original significance of the object itself. The significance of antiquity is derived from the following considerations:
  • Whatever is old is authentic, unadulterated, true, a link with the other world; old things do not deceive, therefore they stand for truth itself;
  • Whatever is old is primitive, closer to that ‘primigenial era’ which boasted the ‘Golden Age’ of humanity;
  • By analogy, whatever is old is related to the primitive stages in the individual’s life, i.e. to the carefree life of the child, the ‘paradise lost’ of childhood.
