My treasures found in a house built in 1896.

I was fortunate enough to have permission to remove items from a home that burned. The original house was built in 1896, and has remained in the same family to this day. I'll be posting my finds to this thread as a way to acknowledge their life and my great pleasure in having their moments in the form of glass wear and bottles.

These are some of the random Knickknack that I have cleaned up.
The boy graduate is not marked in anyway so still looking into him
Same with the small frosted glass ashtray.
Both copper miniature figures are Marked ODI, Old Dutch International. But I haven't had any luck matching them with their records as of yet.
The last little jewel is a soft metal pot of some kind its 1" tall and 1"x1 1/4" wide. No markings. But still very pretty.

The last pic in your first post above that kinda looks like a spatoon? LEON.
It may be, the last resident was an avid smoker and I've found several tin of snuff and chewing tobacco. But being so small, I can't imagine what it would be used for. Sales example maybe?

Hi Skadman! I see some interesting staff here.
The small copper items are realy nice.
In the last post there are some jars with their glass caps I wanna see them. Al
Absolutely, any particular ones you are looking for? I have three maybe four different ones. Some have their lids some don't. I'll try to get the pictures done tonight or in the morning.
