Hello and Welcome to Just Answer,
My name is***** am a Personal Property Appraiser and would be happy to assist you with your question.
Your vintage 1960's cake forks would have been produced in Siam and are composed of bronze.
The inlaid forks would have a current retail value of 45-55AUD.
If there are any dents, dints or damage to the forks or the packaging, this would detract from the resale value.
I hope this information was helpful to you today.
Best of luck with your vintage flatware.
Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated.
Thank You,
Frank
