Any ideas as to what era and what they may specifically be, any help gratefully received

A ring of sorts but the protrusion on the bottom has me baffled, I thought may be a ring key but don't think it is

And a spoon or measure, looked at lots of roman spoons but none seem to match

Thnks for looking

Hi Steve,
Could the first item be a broken stair carpet rod holder ??? or is it too big for that?
Just a thought ?

I'm with you on the second one a spoon or measure.

Both interesting all the same.

I thought the ring may have been a ring pipe tamper also, but the tang on the bottom of the ring is off centre, it fits snuggly on my little finger so pretty sure its a finger ring of sorts

The spoon / Measure doesn't have the typical roman rat tail type of connection to the bowl

Your spoon-shaped wossname is a bit small for an eating spoon and a bit big for something like a salt spoon. Apothecary spoon kind of kidney, perhaps?
