There is nothing we love more than seeing a family, their Heirloomist photograph, and the actual heirloom all in one picture. Pictured here is Carl Riekes alongside his parents’ candlesticks from 1939, his daughter Carin, and her kids. Basically, 78 years of history in one room. The candlesticks were a gift to the family 5 generations ago and they are still used on the family's dinner table to this day. Carl's parents were known for inviting travelers and new residents of their Omaha community to dinner.

We’re grateful to this special gang and all our amazing clients for helping us celebrate tradition and family in such a fun way.
