one and the same,the stoat turns white in winter,this is when they are caught for their pelts.google house of lords and you will see the robes are made of them,the black dots being the tails which sta...
the round one could be an emu or rhea egg.
thats a stoat! and a fine picture of one too.
probably are osterich eggs,my mother had on with a crane/heron painted on one,lovely things to have.
i recon its one of those freaky mega deep sea cretures from the bottom of the sea.
the second image is the correct orientation ,it is hindi,seikhs wear a bracelet like it for religious reasons. i once dated an indian girl i am sure about this.
the language is Hindi an Indian dialect as in asian indian.
one of the half or whole pennies from the 30's was very rare and worth thousands,do some research.

hello this is called a Heliograph.more info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heliograph

imagine it running on lithium batteries ,that is one awsome bit of kit!
fhrjr2 has a point,thinking along those lines maybe a leather stamp?
vb is more likely a makers mark, village blacksmith made they are not,look machine made.
looks like a device for getting water from a well,leting the spring help with the weight of the bucket on its way back up? had it been smaller i would have said it was a pole lathe.
could be polar bear tooth.
could just as easily be for marking a pattern on biscuits or pastry.
maybe an ink well to sit in a desk,bigger hole for filling to save mess,smaller for the pen?
i have seen reversable lures but not quite like that,maybe a folk art piece made from old lure parts?
screams out axe head to me!
probably a treasured toy once.
possibly an american Catalina seaplane.
looking at the shape i recon its supposed to be a seaplane.
is it a cock fighting chair,just it looks like its sat on backwards.
sure about the material? looks like burl from here.

the 'island' looks like the rock of gibraltar the english dependancy.very nice knife btw.
a similar design in the uk is called a bill hook,its generally used for hedge laying,older ones like this usually blacksmith made and usually well made.
a bit of skill has gone into the blade as the tank is tapered,could be a re-dressed knife ie the old handle and guard replaced.
very nice knife,dont let the horn dry too much or it will deteriorate,i use a little hand cream on horn.
could it be a railroad spike knife?
better pictures would help,how big is it? a puuko is a very large knife of around 14 inches, the knife is clearly of the scandinavian design ,the older the knife the more cirtain you can be of the reg...
