Have you used it since?
If not, then what is the point?


I have what is left of my grandmother's china and my parents' crystal.
Both get used at least once a week.
Not a full set remains, and we are not careless, but crystal and china are fragile and a small "bump" that might not even make corelle vibrate will break china/crystal - and, in the end, they are just *THINGS*



Exactly, only I went the other direction. I had my grandmother's service for 12. I didn't really care for it and had probably used it 4 times in my life. Yet I'd MOVED it several times, carefully wrapping it and packing it, and unwrapping it and carefully placing it in the china hutch. Not this time. My good friend loves it, and I happily gave it to her. She used it at Thanksgiving, and I have no idea if any got broken, and don't care.

I use my Fiesta plates every day, and if one gets broken, I can run to Kohl's and replace it for not much money. Love my Fiesta.
