These are paperweight hardware items made by the Ysart/Vasart Bros and Vasart glassworks from around 1946 to 1956/59 for Ysart/Vasart (YVP) and 1956 to 1964 for Vasart (VP). I have these shown in what I believe is the YVP items first and then the later VP items. Some of these hardware items are gear shift knobs, drawer pulls and letter openers. Barware is listed under its own separate catagory.
