I forgot about these two items which are from an outing a few days ago...

Not sure what the long thin object may be, possibly part of an umbrella stay? The uniformity of the holes suggest to me it's fairly modern?

As to the second object has me stumped somewhat...The patina and finish suggest a bit of age, but I can't help thinking it looks like the tip of an umbrella? I don't think it's a ferrule off a cane due to its small size...

As always, any suggestions gratefully received...

Amazing what ye find at the bottom of our bags...
I found my all in one with tonnes of pockets and straps jacket the other day that i bought thinking it was a good idea at the time, but in reality its heavy as anything, with tonnes of pockets, and if worn near a major building i would certainly be arrested by armed police people :lol:
But on cleaning it out today i came across a thruppeny bit and a Georgian coin of some description that i had squirreled away for another day :thumbsup:

First pic, first thought, part of a bell pull. No idea on second one.

Love a mystery item! Could the second item be part of a candlestick? The bit between the stem and the bit where the candle is held. They often taper in at this point, then widen out again to hold the candle.
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
