General Information: These Thai dinnerware items were produced and marketed through more than 25 Bangkok firms, mostly during the 1960s. Buyers should be aware that condition is the most important factor in valuing these items. The utensils, being brass, usually need polishing. The wood spacers between utensils are usually cracked from movement of the utensils during transport -- they are rather fragile. And the case, usually of uncoated (or shellacked) wood, has usually dried significantly. Some lemon oil or other wood penetrating oil usually restores the natural luster of the wood case. The nickel plated clips will often rust if the box was stored in a damp environment. Any other wear or damage are reported with the item descriptions above.
