15+ Treasure Hunters Whose Finds Would Make Even Lara Croft Jealous

Many people think that antiques are boring. But the people from this compilation decided to bust this myth. While some finds can just be pleasant to look at, others can have mind-blowing histories behind them.

We at CHEERY have always thought that antiques are far more interesting than they seem, so we decided to prove it to you by showing the treasures found by people online.

«Finally displaying my uranium glass collection!»

“My friend has an amazing old Magic Chef Stove/Oven combo.”

“Tiny Karl Wiedmann Art Deco iridescent Myra glass vase, found recently at the local thrift for 99 cents. I’m in the US.”

“My grandma’s shelf of antique pottery. Most of these were made in the 1940s.”

“The antique lamp I found in my basement.”

  • Awesome lamp. I’m super envious. I have several of the table-top versions of these, but with reverse color scheme: green six-sided tapering “columns” and yellow balls. Haven’t found any floor standers yet... one day! I’m sure you know this, but they’re quite valuable. © jevvix / Reddit
