1880: shopmade scribe
1883: a chimney pot? Decorative tile pipe that tops off a smoke exhaust, adding to the draft and keeping corrosive smoky products from the nearby masonry. Perhaps also diverts rain from the orifice.

Chimney pot is correct, or chimney top, it's from England, c. 1800s.

    Posting from rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
1879)    Looks like a tent peg designed to sustain a sideways     load on the ring.
1880)    Looks to be more decorative than a tool. Perhaps detail     photos of the points and the wide part might show something     else.
1881)    Looks like a propane bottle fired heavy-duty soldering iron.     I don't see a flow control knob, so it is either run very     hot all the time, or the knob is on the hidden side.
1882)    A pull release for some kind of hitch?
1883)    A wine bottle chiller?
1884)    either a staple gun or a cable tie tightener.
    Now to see what others have suggested.
    Enjoy,         DoN.
