    These date from around 1915 and were fitted to Clerget and Gnome-Rhone rotary engines screwing into the side of the cylinder head. There's a hut at RAF Cosford that has dozens of trays full of various aero engine plugs and fittings and I'm sure I've seen something just like these in there. Nice items!
