      • I thought it was a hearth tool, but what was throwing me off was the appearance of strap attachment extending to the right.


    • You’re right with the first one. The second is a shot of some fireplace tools. Thanks for visiting. 🙂


    • You’re right on the first one but not the second, I’m afraid. Its some fireplace tools – a claw for grabbing coal and part of a brush. 🙂


  1. I reckon an oil lamp and the second one is some sort of exciting medieval torture device 🙂 Or maybe a back scratcher or something to use in a coal fire.

    • You’re right with the oil lamp and you got there in the end with the second picture – its a shot of part of a hearth tidy with a number of fireplace tools. The star shape is a claw for grabbing hot coals. It would probably make an effective torture device, though, and I’ll have to remember it next time I’m in need of a back scratcher!
