Yeah -even if it's fragile and heirloom - it gets used. The silver gets used everyday. The china once a week (maybe once every two weeks). Accidents happen (damn cat). Replacements are there. Fine china menders exist (I know to my chagrin/gratefulness). We honor the family members who have gone before us by using what they left us instead of storing it away and rarely thinking about it.
