The first looks like a Victorian baby carrot sizer and the second looks like a Victorian pickle onion keeper.
They're probably worth about 10K each at today's prices. So don't forget to insure them pronto.

Did you not ask at the time?
there didn't no ether
there just pick up stuff and give it you
I don't have a clue?
bottom one looks like an ash tray!
sorry … "they" not there...
top one could possibly be for honey?
First looks like an aspersorium.
Silver salts minus their blue glass liners.

Edit: The first item, ie pictures one and two.

it's two items by way,
Salt cellar and spoon?
Second could be a butter dish?

looks like church items now
Top one aspergillum and aspersorium.
The bottom one is possibly a ciborium.

I'm not know what they am.
It's the limited edition Amazon echo
They are receptacles for passing round marching powder at wife-swap parties

Second could be a butter dish?


Or if it's teeny weeny, a so-called caviar dish.
i was going to say a spit or chamber pot but i am not sure about the long stick to stir the pot's contents

the second item is just a dish.

Thanks for the like Think we're agreed the aspersorium set looks a decent call. Not so sure the second item has the ergonomics to be held as ciboriums tend to be? Be interesting of course to to know whether the items are hallmarked silver or silver plate...

just say made in England and have a few black dots around
Quite a few silver plated dishes sold as butter dishes on ebay of similar style to second item :
ebay.co.uk/sch…200
Here's one which is apparently electroplated steel from the 1960's :

Could be modern reproduction too I suppose.

Does the aspersorium set have similar markings?

yea looks like butter set, not sure about other item
so much you reckon there worth
Am guessing you're looking for a response from me. Am sorry to say I'm no wiser than you, and most likely less so. You could of course keep an eye on those ebay auctions for an indication. Be interested to know how that Canadian seller worked out the 1960's vintage of her item which I'm assuming is mass produced without very specific markings.

If you're convinced the first item is EPNS then clearly you won't want to get your hopes up much for the value of that either. Still it might well be worth taking to an expert and at the very least you'll satisfy your curiosity. I guess if you could find some markings on it and take a few more photos, an online antiques forum might offer some insight. Here's one I found.
