I found this very interesting post. I can guess what some of them must be but have no idea about the others. Can someone please help identify these:
This is a collection of identifications from existing answers. If you know what something is, please add it here, rather than adding yet another answer - and remember to explain how you use it!
1. An egg scissor. Lee Valley used to sell some as recently as this century. You hold it like scissors, open the blades, put the circle over the top of your hard-boiled egg (which is sitting upright in an egg cup) and close the blades, neatly cutting off the top of the egg. The chicken motif reinforces the purpose. It's gold coloured because it's an entirely showing off tool that nobody genuinely needs.
2. Fork for sardines
3. A pair of tongs for asparagus. Thumb goes in the top ring, two fingers in the rings underneath. Just for asparagus. Yes, it's silly.
4. A butter or cheese knife with an integrated fork. Cut a pat of butter, use the fork to transfer it wherever it's going.
5. Knife for oranges
6. Another butter/cheese knife+fork.
7. Sugar cube scissors. Used to pick up and serve sugar cubes.
8. A cherry pitter. Insert cherry, work the action, no more cherry pit.
9. A pair of butter churns. Pour cream in jar, crank paddles, get butter. You can move the top from jar to jar.
10. A bbq-type fork. It has a little piece of machinery integrated to push whatever it is you've skewered off again. If you squeeze the little handles sticking out at the top, the scissor action will push the end down. I guess it removes the need to use another utensil to do the job...? (It's either that or something designed for easy fire-roasting while you sit at a comfortable distance.)
11. A strawberry stem remover. They still sell these: http://www.shop.thekozynook.com/Strawberry-Huller-5582.htm OR Tweezers to remove fish bones, such as from salmon. OR Tweezers to pluck feathers from birds.
12. Stand for fruit knives
13. A sugar spoon with integrated caster. Take a bit of sugar from the bowl, then use the hole to drizzle it over your food.
14. Device for holding game at cutting (put it on one of the critter's legs, lock it with the screw)
