1200 is a kindling aid, if you will for a fireplace.
The stone was kept in a sheetmetal pitcher about 6" tall with a notch for the twisted wire handle to protrude. (Think tankard) The stone absorbed the kerosene when soaked overnight. It was the placed on a brick located under the lograck, and then lit to kindle the firewood. I recall it burning for 20-30 minutes.
Sure facinated us kids when granpa started a fire in the cottage fireplace.

    Posting from rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
1197)    Looks to me like some form of bottle/jar opener.
    You slid the moving jaw down into contact with the edges of the     lid, and then move the pivoted object at the other end to cam     the toothed ratchet bar down, clamping the lid between the     movable jaw and the fixed jaw, and allowing you to apply     leverage out at the end of the device.
1198)    Either for distributing seed into a row or perhaps     chalk/lime powder to mark lines on a tennis court or some other     sports playing field.
    The lever turns on or off the flow of the contents of the     hopper.
1199)    Hmm ... interesting. It appears to be calibrated, which     suggests that it either measures the size of what it caught     between the jaws, or serves to weigh the object. It the latter     case, it *might* be for weighing a fish just caught to determine     whether it could be kept or must be released?
1200)    Hmm ... to sling around the head (on the end of a line) and     then release, perhaps for sounding depth over water (though a     lead weight is more common.)
    Are there really two loops at right angles at the top, or is     that a shadow showing up as a photographic artifact? I think     the former.
1201)    A set of non-sparking wrenches apparently designed to hang     from a belt loop. They seem to be brass, though I guess that     they could be bronze.
    They appear to be separated by spinning off a winged nut. And     it is interesting that the smaller ones get two sizes to one end     of the wrench handle.
1202)    This looks like a spike to serve as an anchor point at the end     or corner of a fence. The wire forms a loop around one of the     enclosed pins before passing over the side horns of the top,     while the raised striking area avoids damaging (and weakening)     the wire as you drive the spike into the ground.
    Now to see what others have guessed.
    Enjoy,         DoN.
