Got permission from an old farm dating back to the early 1900?s. Wondering if you could help me out on these items. Seabees DC494F8B-F587-4547-9604-A07726B93260.jpeg 162573F5-2630-4FA6-9206-CAE09BE4FD0D.jpeg D7CC9AFA-D494-4293-B1FD-56B847BE6C28.jpeg F1DA6ED4-F45B-4751-9D27-22BCA41C9763.jpeg

First item looks like a match case or needle case. Second item a two clapper bell, looks to be part of a Liturgical bell set (AKA Altar bells, Sanctuary bells).

For the bell thing I was contemplating an antique wall phone bell (one of the pair) but the inside looks like it has clacker parts and seems a little different than most wall phones.

I would say the first one would be a match safe mainly because of the screw on bottom. It was meant to be weather proof.

I'd say the first item is an old Schrader valve stem cover.

Thank you for the relies, the pics don’t really show it but the cap has a hole through it, that’s what’s got me puzzled. Also on the second one I’ve been asking around and another guess would be possible sheep bell ?

Now knowing there is a hole in the cap looking part I realize it is the base part of a valve stem cover!

Mud Hut is correct, the first item is a valve stem cover from a Model T Ford or other early automobile.

These are a few early examples.
