Customer Question
I have an old...

I have an old Thai brass with teak wood handles and dancer on end of cutlery. Is in original box and mint condition is a 29 piece. Have had as long as I remember. Can you tell me may be worth?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Made from Thai products Inc. In Bankock Thailand. Still in original box. Was given to me by grandparent that traveled and was wealthy man. I've had this for years and it has always been in box and is not tarnished at all. I am not sure if brass or gold.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Hi,

This is your answer, please read entirely.
.
The Siam Flatware Set ( Thailand ) in original box, has an estimated value on the current market for an average of $300.00-350.00 if sold at an auction it would sell for a little less,at around $150.00-175.00 , if this were sold in a High End Antique Shop in a larger city it would sell for $350.00 and up depending on the condition. If I were selling it I would list it for $350.00
.

Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained. If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from.
.
You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online. There is Offerup.com, Varagesale.com, Wanelo.com, www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com and letgo.com. There is also Amazon Market Place, and of course Ebay. You can also sell on Charish, where you consign items. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great! All sites can be sold from with pick up only option.
.
If you sell to a dealer, antique shop or resell shop you can expect to get about 30-40% of what it is worth since they have to resell the item.
.
Please ask any question you might have about your answer before rating this.
.
It was a pleasure working for you. I would be happy to help you with any items in the future.
