Hatchet woven same as basket weaving - Unknown origin. 14" handle with 8" x 12" hatchet.
The thing you call a hatchet is actually a fan, even now available in Oriental gift shops. I have had older looking ones marked JAPAN. I am sure the style has been made for a long time, traditionally, but I doubt if this one (or the ones I have had) are earlier than the 1970s.
The third thing looks like a Camper made version of a bull roarer. I would guess that there were plans for the design on old Pak-O-Fun magazines, and I bet Cub Scouts are STILL making them. Go on outside and give it a spin--see if it make a racket.
Your welcome! My brain is still working on that fur thing. THAT one may be of real interest. Are those red and blue diamonds stitched or glued on? Is the bottom fur or another disk of leather? Is that bone piece knotted in place or does it slide?
