Brittle.Cursed retains generic color.
Brittle means it cant have POF applied to it more than a certain number of times(it drops the durability)Antique takes damage way faster, and from things gear doesnt normally take damage from(like casting a spell)
WARNING, there was a rather serious bug with POFing antique items, I will make wild assumption that it hasn't been fixed. https://forum.uo.com/discussion/1476/various-clean-items-inablility-to-pof-antique-items-vs-repair-pof#latest
