Hi Mike,

I assume you mean in total for the 9 spoons...

I am particularly interested in the Indian Swastika spoon, the Egyptian looking one, and the Burma inscribed one if you can help a bit further thank you I have to go out now so will get back to you probably tomorrow.

Hi Stephen, Yes the 9 spoons but the one with the Indian Swastika the Swastika means good luck but it looks like a figure dancing the 3 spoons are the bulk of the value at around £9.99 each.
