man-tique
 n.— «I found Richard Wyvill’s oil painting “Electrical Cord” the most notable of all. Wyvill is known around the area for his nostalgic still lifes filled with boyhood toys, and trinkets from what we’d surmise to be roughly a 1950’s childhood. Sometimes referred to as “Man-tiques” in the collectables field.» —“Northern Virginia Art Beat” by Kevin Mellema Falls Church News-Press (Virginia) Mar. 15, 2007. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
