Most of the nice things we have, we use. Some, we don't.
I have a small collection of Van Briggle pottery. That stays on a nicely secure high shelf.
You don't want your house to look like the velvet ropes should be up but, certain precautions should be taken. Really valuable things should be safely out of the reach of children or known klutzes.
However, if something of value breaks, I would offer compensation to the owner and mean it.
That's unlikely to happen because, in the presence of rare things, we automatically assume the 'Museum position'... Hands in pockets or behind the back.
