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.

Thank you for your input. You are the only one who had any idea what these were. I can't imagine why my mother in law would have thes things. I shall donate them to Goodwill. THANKS AGAIN.

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?

I put this stuff in storage, so I can't just go look at it. From recollections, I do not think the colors are glued on. They may be painted, just not sure without looking. I am almost sure the fur covers the entire other side. When I can get into the other room, I have more pictures I can look at. I think these my have come from Alaska. Sorry to be so unhelpful, but just had surgery on my ankle Tuesday.
