    Tools and and a cork. There is a flathead screwdriver along with a corkscrew and a glove/shoe hook I dont exactly know how old these are but i believe they are from around the 60s as they were my grandfathers.

      Hey Henry, I think that's a button hook, used to pull a button on a shoe, through the eye, on 1800's-1920's shoes! :^D
      Thanks for posting, I have a few advertising corkscrews like yours, and some of the button hooks had ivory handles! :^)

      Here's a link to a google image search for Victorian Button Hooks:

      I hope this helps! :^)

      Thanks bill. I had no idea it was for shoes and that it was so old.

      The tool was also used as a glove hook. Neil
