I inherited these from my mother, but I had never seen them before, and I don't think she was a crocheter, just a knitter.

 I can't figure out what they are for?

Hi, I'm guessing they would be doll shoes/socks.  An egg cup/cozie.  If you knew a bit of her background, did she have dolls?  Are you at all British?  In England its customary to use egg cups, and to cover them would keep them warm.  I don't know what the diameter of those are, but... My grandmother had crocheted me a doll and the feet and hand ends looked very similar to those, making those GREAT socks for her(it).

I hope this helps.  Maybe she just thought they were pretty and got them at a flea market, yard sale or antique shop.  You never know do you...

Good luck!
