I can see the first one being called "steampunk".  Generically (from a steampunk perspective) it's a brass thing-y doodad which could be used in constructing a valid steampunk contraption.
I've advertised brass and copper stock (sheet, tubes, rods etc) as "steampunk" and also some brass jewellery findings.
I've used all of the above in my steampunk builds and think it is a good way to sell such stuff  to other folks who build steampunk devices and costumes.

Me: OK
Society: No. Not like that.

Just saw some (at a New year's Eve gathering) in the "Cheese Whiz in celery" format. Blech.
As far back as I can remember I refused to consume that *stuff* in any version, combination, presentation. My three brothers, tho', loved it.  :P

Ha, ha! I'm not sure exactly what prompted that response, but I'll believe anything nowadays

Great thread! Beretta 1938,  MP28,  and MP34 submachineguns[SMG]look  steam punk but  they  are  from the diesel punk era. Some firearms transcend both eras for example, the original M1911 .45 pistol is Steam Punk because originated  before  1920. But the 1911A1, is a diesel punk weapon because it originated about 1925-ish[?]. 

Incidentally, the MP34 SMG is the Austrian one that is mentioned in 'The Great War: 1861'.
