The second is a circle cutter for brace and bit as somebody has said.

if the picture showed the working end of the tool instead of the handle.

No, that's not what it is. The square tapered end is the common
termination for a hand held brace. It looks very similar on the
working end, but the one you linked to is usually used to cut leather
and cork and such for gaskets.
Its a repleace able end hand shaper. The one thumbscrew in the block
held the scraper bit, and the other onthe angle provided prerssure
onthe bit to make it ridgid inplace onthe tool. It was commonly used
in manufacture of wooden double sash windows in conjunction with
planes like the Stanley 88 etc. It also was capable of holding the
same blades as the the Stanley 88 plane used, which allowed the shape
shaper / scraper bit to get in to corners etc.
You already know about the other device used in a brace.
The one on the right is a washer cutter, but it's mis-assembled. The two
cutters should be on the same side (otherwise they get in each others'
way). It's used to cut two circles out simultaneously, to make a ring
