They both have pins through them. Guess they were attached to something like a dowel. What would they be used for?

I thought the same but no trash in area. Everything else found was closer to a hundred years earlier then those type of blinds were made.

Those are the tips from an old parasol. I've dug several of them at home sites that date as far back as the 1840's - 1850s when it was common for all women to carry one around.

That's great. It looks like you nailed it.
I've found a couple others in different places. Really was puzzling me for awhile. Must have been heavy.
