Although I estimate this piece was manufactured in the 1920s, the manufacturing date is unavailable, therefore I have described this piece as "vintage" and not "antique". I take the term "antique" very seriously and would only use it when year of manufacturing can be proven.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN "VINTAGE" AND “ANTIQUE”?
ETSY’S POLICY STATES ANY ITEM AT LEAST 20 YEARS OLD TO BE “VINTAGE”.
VINTAGE: This term has several different accepted meanings, and that can cause confusion. The loosest meaning implies that the item is of a fashion that was popular in a different era. Used in this sense, "VINTAGE" may not mean that it was produced in that era, but simply that it mimics the fashions of that era. This can cause trouble, because most people expect the term to mean something more when applied to something that is being bought or sold.
Many people expect it to have some standard of date applied to it. Accordingly, most experts in the trade have decided that the term "VINTAGE" refers to items that are over 50 years old, but less than 100. This kind of standard works when dealing with truly old, but not antique, items but falls short when using the term to describe something newer, and from a specific era.
If an item is said to be “VINTAGE”, then, it should, technically state the year, or the era, in which it was manufactured. Etsy fulfills this expectation.
ANTIQUE: When buying or selling an item labeled "ANTIQUE," trade standards suggest that the term should be reserved only for items greater than 100 years old. Outside of the practice of buying and selling items, however, use of the word "antique" can be understood to attach no specific age to an item. However, some hold to an 80 year marker. The 80 year marker considers the heritage of the item in that it reflects the span of two generations, with one generation traditionally considered to be the length of 40 years.
