SBF Siam Utensils

My grandmother recently passed away and we found these utensils in her house. Unfortunately we do not know anything about them.

These Siam utensils, many from complete sets, were sent or brought to America during and after WW-II. They are hand made of bronze ( actually called BRONZE.WARE ), with handles made from horn. I can't help you with a value, especially since the market for everything is down.

I have a complete set. My grandmother got her's during the Vietnam War. My Uncle was over there at the time and sent her a set. They came in a velvet lined wood box. I still have her's, but I have no idea what there worth.

I too have a complete set that needs cleaning. I am curious as to what to use safely. Any idea of the value since your last post?

My siblings and I are likewise cleaning out our Mother's house and found two Willy bronze-ware utensils exactly like these except they have small ball ends....almost like chopstick ends except they are not the same length....any idea what they could be used for ?

They are geisha hair sticks to hold a hair bun in place. They came in sets of three.
