What is a MANtique?

According to the Urban Dictionary there are a few definitions:

“An antique or collectible that appeals mainly to men, such as old fishing rods & lures, pin-up calendars, tools, toy cars, etc.”

“Super manly man antique items that would not suit ill in any type of accommodation. Mostly found in man caves, bachelor pads or any room that is designated as ‘lost’ in the eyes of the (possible) wife/cohabiting partner. Mantiques can appear in the form of globe bars, a knight’s suit of armor, old stuff made from leather, old typewriters/camera’s (preferably cased in leather), a bronze bull, a military lantern/or bell and dead trophy animals in any form or shape.”
