mystery objects "contest"....

Ok,
I guess this is a contest,
but since it is on the internets,
and there is no prize,
I guess it's not a real contest.
But,
anyway...
we are going to see, all 14 of us,
who can guess the closest 
to when these mystery objects were made.
I am not going to tell you anything at all about them.
All you get are my crappy
shots.
(No, I can't tell you where I took the shots either.)
I'm not even really concerned with the designer/s,
although that would be nice,
I am more concerned with the date of the design.
Please submit your
guesses, statements of fact, 
in the comments
section.
I will not post any comments until
someone gets it very close or correct.
Maybe this will take an hour,
maybe YEARS,
we will see....


One last thing,
this is not like 
The Price is Right
closest is closest,
I don't give a shit if you go over.
Thank-you and
Good luck!

    1930's hotel desk bells-Belgium.

    I'd be happier if i could touch them & see them in scale.

    Anyway, This is just a wildass guess.
