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

Well, anyone with a piece of expensive jewellery will easily have the oldest item, as diamonds are aged between 900 million and 3.2 billion years old. Unless a.little.bird's mum is even older.

We have this massive unit my grandparents got in Germany called a Shrank. It's something like 20/30 years old.

Hmm.

Well our house is 135 years old to start with. I have some books from before then, going back as far as the 17th century - my oldest book, I think, is a copy of the Authorised Bible, "newly" translated from the original tongues &c.

I have some tools that are a few hundred years old too - the oldest of these is a mesolithic hand-axe, possibly 10ky old.

Probably the oldest thing in the house (and which I own) though would be a fossilized echinoid I was given as a child, which according to the certificate that came with it is from the middle Jurassic.
