I know this is a few years old, but I created a service specifically for this dilemma. I take your family china and carve it into jewelry that you actually want to wear. That way you can still honor your family and use your family objects without the burden of storing an entire china set. Check it out at www.materialandmovement.com
Break it and make a table top art piece with broken china and grout.
Have you tried a discontinued china company that resells to the public when they break somthing or want more to make up a set? The only other thing, if you have tried and failed to kep in the family is to have it made in to articles you would use eg:
Applied to a Mirror or Picture Frame or resurface a table or piece of furniture or Lamp. Make a bird bath or Bird Feeder. Make something as a gift for all the family as a keepsake. Take a picture of some of it and frame it up. Hang some of the plated on the diningroom wall oor upo the stairs. Use Tureens as Planters. Stack some pieces to make Candlesticks etc. Maybe atleast one piece might be welcomed by the family as a momento. Best wishes, I too miss being able to give dinner parties or accept invitations as I used to......I have a number of different designs and date line place settings in store - hoping one day they will find a home as a complete set...AH!
I would give it to someone who would use and take care of it.
