    Perhaps a case for a fountain pen or something?

    The bottom two pieces look like removable steps. They are lying on their tops in the photo. Used on large trucks, water towers, buildings, even airplanes for maintance of hard to reach areas where they want clean crisp lines. They slide into a hole, and snap on an anchor. When finished, unsnap and remove.

    Jay these things are only small, like carabiners, or strap clips, i think the pointed end goes through a hole in the strap or something similar, look at the grain and knot holes in the table to guage size etc

    Wow! Thought you had found a .22 pen-gun there for a second! But it looks very much like an old casing for a medical thermometer. My grandmother who was a nurse had a thermometer in a similar pen casing. Hope it helps.

    Oh, I see, difficult to judge size. Thanks. They sure have had alot of metal to metal or metal to rock grinding action on the bottom.

    I had the same thought, got excited there for a moment, SOE , CIA, came to mind, but thermometer does sound plausible
