A couple of bits for ID please

Both found on the same permission on pasture with my Nox, field 1, custom settings but basically Fred’s. Firstly the buckle/ handle- it’s copper/alloy and is decorated with marks all around. I can’t figure out what it is? Maybe a Georgian drawer handle?
The other item is bronze alloy at the top which joins iron. I did wonder whether it could be a dagger/ sword handle. But it could just as easily be something completely uninteresting! I just can’t bring myself to put it in the junk box quite yet. Thanks in advance :D

It looks as though somebody dumped their fire irons and coal scuttle (the handle)!

I think pic one may have been part of a brass bedstead and pic two is a very typicle bell pull grip.

Could very well be. The main point is that it is domestic rather than fantastic! :D
