Universal Watch Winder

Also found at Nantwich antique fair.  I bought the bottom one, which has a wooden handle..but the man on the stall said he had done some research and discovered it was a watch winder which could be used for any size winder...he had found the patent for something similar..which as luck would have it...I have one (top gold coloured one).

Razor blade in a holder.

Found for £1 in an antique fair in Nantwich. The firm Singleton and Cole where tobacco manufacturers and apparently there was a firm in Walsall. I am not entirely sure what job this were made for.

Address book for a key ring 1970.

Found on a stall in the Northwich Memorial Hall....for £2.50. It has the look of an object from 1970, with a hole that made me feel it was to attach to your key ring.But the almost Chatelaine feel seems out of date. They had applied for a patent ...but I somehow feel it was an object out of its time.
