    Help ID items from 100 yr old farm site

    These 3 pieces came from the same hole, all close to each other. Seems to be brass/copper except for one end which has iron. Any thoughts on what it was? This site was abandoned about 100 yrs ago. Thanks!

    I know that the little item with a screw is called a "carriage knob" abd was used to hold curtains in buggys and carriages. The other two pieces look like they may be broken "push-up" style candle sticks that have become detached from their basses.

    Thanks very much for the carriage knob ID! And the candlestick idea sounds very possible. Thanks!
