My wife's Mom passed a while back and the "girls" are cleaning up the old house getting it ready to put on the market. They found these two things in the kitchen. I said you guys would know what they are.
The second picture shows a pestle on a decorative hanger. The wire is the hanger, and the loop at the top is where the nail or screw goes through into the wall. The pestle is used in making jam. You push the fruit through a sieve with it, trapping seeds and other unwanted material, and allowing the fruit and juices to flow to the cooking container. My wife has one in her jam making gear.
