Other than admiring it or selling it for a lot of money later, what is the point of collecting china and silverware?

I understand holding on to china and silverware that was passed down from one generation to the next, but I'm referring to people who buy it online or get it at antique shops
Update: For once I wasn't being a smartaXX, Stinky Stan. I just don't understand the appeal. But I'm into dorky stuff that others may not understand or enjoy, so que sera, sera.
