Yesterday, while out roaming the burn area west of Stevenson Rd, I came upon the ruins of an old campsite. Among the debris, there was an old kerosene lantern, and these tools shown in the photo below. Does anyone have an idea the real purpose for these tools?

First glance/wild guess, they look like you would put something in the "ring" end and hold it over a fire? I used to work in a foundry a long time ago and we used similar items to melt lead ingots in a ladle

Thanks to all for the guesses to date. I didn't inspect the tools that close. But looking at the photo, it looks like the ring might be adjustable. If that is the case, it is my guess, the tool is to hold a crucible.
