Have recently been detecting new permissions in an old town near us. We are finding some really old stuff but I have found a few things that I can't identify. I'm hoping that you guys can help me out with this.

Thanks in advance,

Cool finds. Love to see the Goodies.
The screw type tube could be a modelT valve cap.

I thought so initially but its closed on both ends and was once plated with gold. The first image is a handle of some sort and too was plated with gold.

Just a wild guess, the one pictured on the far left is a ladies make-up brush and holder. I would say that if you pulled it apart you can tell for sure.
The item pictured in the middle is a lipstick tube, which I also think comes apart and you could see the shade she liked.
That one on the right I have no idea other than some kind of link chain.

Someone else suggested that may be a lipstick tube, very possible. I'll try soaking it in some oil to see if I can get it open. Also, someone suggested the linked item could possibly be a "choke" type necklace from the 20's or 30's? Danged if I know! Regardless, i'm going to make a noble effort to link it all back together because the home owner would like to have it. LoL

I am sticking with the item in the first picture on the left being a cosmetic brush and tube holder. If you look there is crimp line about a 1/4 way up from the 2 finger handle end. Put in the oil with the other it should come open pretty easy.
Hope you will post when you find out.

I had the item that looks like tool handle (what 1). After I was unable to identify it and put it in the recycle box and cashed in I saw a pic here that was identical. I believe it is indeed a valve stem cover for a Model T.

UPDATE!

After soaking the bullet shaped object I was able to get it apart and its definitely lipstick, a really dark shade of red. After cleaning the object that resembles a valve stem cover i noticed that there is a trace of iron down in the end. I'm thinking that it must be a razor handle.
