  1. 1723: Cap for a wine bottle?

    1724: For truing bicycle wheels

    1725: One end of a stand for a large roll of some material?

    1726: First thought was an adjustable bicycle rack for a car, but then realise the notches are the wrong way, so maybe its some kind of adjustable support that hooks onto a pair of round bars

    1728: Looks like a small cannon for ceremonial type events

  2. 1723 for cutting cork covers, wine
    1724 trueing stand for something,little small for bikes though
    1725 engine stand
    1728 signal cannon

  3. 1726 may hook on scaffolding to hold walk plank

  4. 1723. I have not seen this model before, but it looks like it is intended for champagne rather than a than a still wine.

    1725: Engine Stand

    1726: Looks like a ladder steady

    1723. Wax seal remover for a wine bottle
    1724. Wheel truing device
    1725. Engine stand
    1728. Signal cannon

    >1726 may hook on scaffolding to >hold walk plank
    >1726: Looks like a ladder steady

    These are both close
