      Charivari is a Bavarian term for these .... Used as part of a set of charms on a chain suspended from your Lederhosen. A noise maker dangling over the groin.

      See my previous answer in Aghcollects post. These might most possibly also be 'grandlers' from red deer (a special kind of teeth often used as trofy).
