I was going thru some old stuff yesterday when I found and was totally amazed by ...

2 BMW Forks

So I called my moms and I asked her where the hell these cam from and are there more?
So it turned out that my grandpa worked in Germany before WWII and he brought those
and there were a set of forks, knives & spoons but during movings I guess they got lost
and only those two remained. They are quite old and unique. I googled "BMW forks" - nothing !

I'm thinking of polishing them {or should I ?} and was wandering if I might sell one ... anyone with an idea how much they might cost?

Cool! I'm guessing they are from a company cafeteria or executive dining room.

Very collectible, I'm sure.

Go to an antique dealer. They should be able to tell you they're average worth, and also how to care for them. Very cool by the way.

BMW used to make kitchen products after the war. It was one of the only ways they could continue to generate income. BMW was not allowed to make automobiles or motorcycles for a period of time.
