    I've seen these before, but i can't remember what they are for. At least some of the parts are hand-forged. I'll probably use them to hang plants, whatever they are. i got them for $3 each, just cuz i'm curious.

      Looks like an idea that didn't work. LOL

      i've seen these before. there must be someone out there who recognizes what these tools were used for.

      These are trammels. One was used hanging in a fireplace to raise or lower a cooking pot. A household seldom needed two.

      I must say I love them now that I know what they are for (even tho I’ve never cooked in an open fireplace and hope I never have to)!
