Dang ... it’s been five years since my last “mystery post.” So once again I thought it would be fun to challenge the CW folks to identify these thingamabobs. They are not rare but are somewhat uncommon.
The small accessory (left) is roughly 1½ inches tall while the other is about 2¾ inches in height.
As with my previous ‘mystery accessory’ posts, anyone who guesses correctly will have my admiration and those of your CW peers. Of course, these are identified objects and I will post period advertising later on ... or sometime after I return home in mid-October.
FWIW ... a really, really rare mystery object I posted five years ago was figured out in two days. These should be easier and probably shouldn’t take more than a day to identify ... so don’t disappoint me!
PS: Wild comical speculation is always encouraged!
Props to Buckethead for identifying these! I posted an 1898 advert showing these exact focusing aids.
