  7. Definitely a carpenters pencil holder. Google carpenters pencil holder and look on images. Lots of them, some of them can be very valuable especially the Sampson Mordan ones. Neil

  20. It could well be as its maybe dried out over the years but it feels and looks like some form of acrylic but I am not sure if acrylic was around in the early 1900s. Neil
