Thumbscrews for torture? Paper napkin holders for outdoors? Actually I think they could be nut crackers of some sort.

Well controlled nut crackers, for when you want to extract, say, the pecan nut whole. The screw provides precise pressure that avoids mashing the nut.

They are nut crackers. Take a look at this link:

Ebay has one with a bowl selling for $69. Do a Google search for antique simple round wooden nut crackers and you will find many images and some sales. My grandmother used to have one with a bowl. It was less time consuming than the decorative ones when processing nuts for baking cakes and pies.
