Made from wood or metal (but any rigid solid would do),
what is the function of these (hollow) objects?

Hand bells for Buggy Swires or Wee Mad Arthur.
Three on the left the tops rotate and two of them are sprung so, for crushing or grinding pepper?

they kinda' look like gambling markers, but those are usually solid, not hollow

Not a table game and not fishing.
