Hello,

I know this is off the beaten path. But, I figure there must be someone on here who is into antiques and may be able to identify these objects for a museum.

They were said to teaspoon holders. Any confirmation would be nice.
Thanks,
DB1

The first one definitely looks like it was put together from two or more other items, I also believe the second one could have been as well. The top of the second one appears to be a wall sconce or something I 've seen before added to a base, not sure on the second, but the first pic really looks like a fabricated from other items

I'm not sure, but it sure gives me an idea for a wrench holder for NJKen for Christmas!

I too think the first one is a piece made up of other parts, the second I'm not so sure, I'm no expert but I have not seen spoon holders made like that.

Just not sure what they would be used for.  Will think on it.

Thanks for the reply Old Buzzard.

I'll be sure and tell the curator of the museum.

Old Buzzard seems to have it pretty well pegged.    Even up into the middle of the last Century(wait that was when I was born?) a local blacksmith would fashion whatever the customer wanted or needed from whatever stock he had on hand. Trivets and kitchen items were not at all uncommon  so repurposing scrap makes sense.

My dad had a 28 " skillet my grandfather had, had made around 1930 by a blacksmith. He told Dad with 7 kids he was the only person he knew that could use it daily.

To me the first one looks like it might be used to hold tobacco pipes,the other 2 definitely look like spoon holders

This was my first though on the first item too - an old pipe rack. Too bad I only have one pipe.

A pipe rack would have a much wider base for the bowls to rest on.  You don't store a pipe with the stem down.
