    I agree.
    I see nothing that connects them to Germany or the TR era. Are there any markings on them?

    There are none, they were in a little box with other german items my great grandfather brought home. As of right now my best guess is that they are german womens fashion items he was going to bring to his wife. Even though I dont know how they would be worn.
