This chapter aims to show how people treat family porcelain and what the management of family porcelain means in today’s Britain. Nowadays, family porcelain handed down among people was originally given as a present in rituals of passage or inheritance. It tends to be inherited from paternal grandmother, mother and maternal side of family. Most of family porcelain is not used but displayed or kept. By displaying family porcelain, family memories of the past members and rituals are embodied in a space as a living room in people’s house. By using family porcelain daily or in special occasion, family memories are reviving more vividly in people’s life and are connecting each generation to the lineage. The management culture of family porcelain in England can be described as “modelling museums” in maintaining objects regarded as family heirlooms and the values embodied by those objects: aesthetic, remembrance, informative, educational and symbolic as well as prestige and monetary worth. It is now a flexible modern means of identifying and expressing oneself through the continuity of the family and a sense of family corporate connections.
