Similar situation. I was given the choice of items from my great grandmother and I chose a particular bowl. It was stored at my parents' house and my mother decided she had to have her own version and bought one. Later she brought one of those bowls to me here in Switzerland, but no one knows if it is the one from my great grandmother or the one my mother bought.

Because of this, it has lost any sentimental value it once had. I can't be certain it's the actual bowl from my great grandmother and I don't want to make a sentimental attachment to some antique store find.

I think I hadn't realized until now how much that annoys me.
