So, I collect antiques. I have many that are nowhere online. So I was wondering if this is lost media. I mean in definition it is but is it worth looking into. I have a few items that are somewhat bizarre, like a company that seems to be completely non-existent online and a doll that has an odd appearance that is nowhere to be found from a fairly well-documented company. Of course, these items are antiques so they're rather old (the two examples are from 1920 to the 1950s and the other is from the 1950s so it may be helpless). I just wondering if I should upload all I know about them and people can help me. Thank you for reading
Hello, these antiques could be interesting and I'm sure there's an audience for them somewhere, but they don't count as lost media under our site's definitions. You're using "lost" to mean undocumented, whereas when we talk about lost media we're talking about media that is inaccessible. You can make a movie, a tv show, an album etc. accessible to everyone by uploading it, but with physical objects, no matter how many pictures you take of it, the object itself will never be accessible to anyone but the owner.
