    Possibly the Eisernes Kreuz (Iron Cross) which was also used prior to the Nazi party, also possibly a butter pat dish or caddy scoop depending on size.

    I think this is a souvenir of St Juan de Compostella. A scallop shell was worn by those who had completed the pilgrimage.

    could be from anywhere on the pilgrimage ways to Santiago de Compostella. St Juan de Compostela is a small Hotel in Compostela.
