What is it???



Can you guess??
These are about 7/8" x 1 1/2"
but can come in a variety of sizes.
They have been rusted, cause I like rust!

C'mon. Give it a go.
Guess what it is,
and if you like 'em, you can win some.

Guess on this post only. Ends July 31st at midnight..

Interesing indeed!
My guess: the metal plates for the locksets on old doors, where the screws go.

;-) Thanks!

I want to say it looks like a washer of some sort that maybe went behind a key plate??....idk. If that's not it, I'd have to guess it's something from under the hood of a car or tractor!! haha

I agree with Sheila! That's what I think they are too! :) Are they?

xo, Sonya

Susan said...

well, definitely looks like keyholes there, so I also guess they are part of a lock set.

I think they are gaskets for door handles, to seal the wind etc from blowing thru.Love all the little things you find, wishing I was in your neck of the woods

thanks D

I'm not sure what theses were originally, but I would turn them into tiny picture frames, by placing the artwork in the 2 larger holes, and tying ribbon to the top two holes, forming a loop to hang it by. Thanks, Cindy

Ido said...

I say they are door key plates, latch plates? Oh gosh, I hope I'm right! Love them!

I'm guessing a doorbell keyhole set. Fun!

I have an idea.
Gaskets? Of an engine of some type?
Motorcycle ?

I too would turn them into picture frames.

Well, Barbara Jean, my guess is that they might be the plate behind the door buzzer/bell..can't wait to find out if I'm right!

My first post and maybe third visit (from CL).

Gaskets/washers except one is solid which could mean an end plate

Tee said...

Okay, I first thought car gaskets too until I read the size. Some readers have already guessed key hole thingys. They're prolly right but just in case not, I'll guess that they are
Old post office plates.
I love Crimson's idea of using them for picture frames.

I think they are gaskets of some sort but not sure what kind. They sure are cool! Great find!

They look like metal gaskets- we had an farm parts and auto store and the tractors had gaskets like this sometimes it seemed.

You find the greatest things- love the little green car!

Betsy said...

Hmm, gaskets from a tractor? I sure have some repurposing ideas in mind:-)
