Cool finds...
Spoon is great.

First item is a locket of small compact... cannot tell the size of it.
Second item MAY be a "key hook".
Third item is Lantern part... and misc ?
Forth... bit... files... spade...wedge and shoes.
sixth... looks more like rivet... colonial ?
Seventh .. Trivet ?

Others here will help I.d.

The items with the lantern are the cap for the oil and not sure about the other. It says "Bevins" on it which I looked up, they made oil lamps so I think it must go together

Nice bunch you got there. More often than not, you may find either a maker's mark or patent info on the round knob of the wick adjuster (oil lamp part). If you haven't looked at it yet, do so...many forget to check that knob out.

I took it to a antique store and showed it to a bunch of dealers. A few of them said they thought it was a key to a chest
