    Likewise. Might not be from aircraft parts though, being brass. Possibly ship or artillery parts?

    I have to agree with Terry on this one, but they are pretty cool looking.

    I checked with some of the guys at duxford (as I'm a volunteer there) and they don't think its from any aircraft either, but never the less they are nice items which are now on ebay
