Vintage typewriter eraser from Eberhard Faber, model Van Dyke. This model has the red eraser with green brush whiskers, one of the more colorful versions of the typewriter eraser. I believe these erasers were manufactured sometime between 1950-1960s. The eraser was used to eliminate mistakes while using a typewriter and the brush to whisk away any eraser crumbs left on the page.
This is an early TV remote control. Not much to say about it. It had a combination on/off and volume control switch, channel switches and a mute switch. The model shown appears to be for a color TV set.
