The sharing of Kohl applicators was the major cause of conjunctivitis for many decades..before 1970.
The other item is the tobacco pipe and tobacco holder. Well spotted !!!

wow! i just noticed the Kohl-container is made of a cartridge! hmm . .
It seems bullets cartridges have widely been put into other uses. Just the other day, I saw an old Arab Bedu man holding a walking stick, the tip of which was made of a Martini-bullet cartridge!
and thanx for the info about the conjunctivitis. That is definitely something new!
