The only really old thing that comes to mind is my grandfather's Buck knife.
Unless you count the Sears battery charger that I bought in 1976.
Bronze flur de lis belt buckle that I got in 1968. It's been worn every time I I've worn jeans since. I was involved in a head/leather shop and the buckle came in an assortment of 200 Bronze buckles. Mine was the only one of it's kind in the assortment.
we have a 30+ year old clothes-dryer and we ain't gettin' rid of it.

36 yo pair of Cerwin-Vega's still rocking the house ( after a couple of re-cones) that dad gave me. Crossovers are bit flaky at times but still they sound great.
30 yo Pioneer tuner and amplifier now relegated to garage duty powering an Ipod.
34 yo 14 or 15 Sony Trinitron. Haven't powered it in while but I'm sure still works.
I still use a number of my grandfather's tools, somewhat out of utility and somewhat out of sentimentality. Not every old tool is better made than today's stuff . When I don't want a battery powered drill, this get's pulled out (not an actual pic, but an internet find. mine has a keyless chuck):
oh crap, sorry for gigantic image

I had a 1937 toaster that I used until a few years ago but the cord burned that if I hadn't noticed would have taken down a lot of everything else.
I still shoot an old Belgian Browning A-5 that my Dad gave me from 1974.

My gramps old S&W .38, he bought it new in the 30's and we both used it as a duty weapon at one time.
Hell, if we are talking that age I still use the HP41CX that I bought in college every day. That thing just turned 30 years old this year. And it just received its millionth "WTF is that" from a young engineer yesterday.
These uppers on these are also 30 years old and still in use:
And the top one is nearly 35 years old and still in use:
