  1. 2456 seems to be a devie for cleaning brushes...

    2457 have a slight idea, but it is not adequate for wrought iron used, i will give my guess after the Neatorame game started..

    2458 could be a hoof cleaner hoof scratche..

    2459 no idea,

    2460 seems not to be complete, but i guess it could be a part of an atillery target calculator or a part of a bomb sight.

  2. 2455: Trench periscope?
    2459: a tool for coopers?
    2460: Certainly looks like it's for bombing or navigation of aircraft. possibly a dead recconing calculator?

  5. 2460 I certainly thought bomb computer but even the wwi sights I found on wikipedia looked more advanced.

    Flight computer is my next guess.

  6. 2456. In my studio, they hold artist brushes upright in solvent or water, depending on the medium used. Have never had one with the screen in the bottom.
