Found all in same target,some type of copper alloy.
About 5" on old pasture.
Haven't a clue whence this came from,all I can guess is a wick winder for an oil lamp
Ring shape is externally threaded,bottom left has a very thin tube wall.

Having said that, what I thought was a wick winder doesn't look quite right?

Now that makes sense in more ways than one. Back in the day my dad always took a Primus Stove on a picnic. It was quite a ritual...whistling kettle and all that gig in order to make a brew.
It wasn't a proper picnic without one. I suspect it went back to the wartime experience of people like my dad. (Desert Rat)
Anyway, it wasn't just us...family picnics in random fields was a big thing in the sixties when I was a nipper. There were often dramas with boiling water and things going bang. lol So it is probably a relic of someone's Grand Day Out.
Equinox 600, GMP, wellies.
