Kitchen Heirlooms

My fiance and I recently had a conversation about things we'd like to keep to remember our grandparents by after they're gone. The one thing I'd like most to have is my grandmother's marble rolling pin. My grandmother is a big part of why I love to bake - we always made cookies or pies together. My fiance hopes we can take home his grandmother's butcher block. It would need a little care to make it useable - the top is a little sunken in places and it's too short for either of us (his grandma is under 5' tall), but it's a beautiful piece we could get many years of use out of.

What heirlooms do you guys have (or hope to have) in your kitchens?
