A relative has these items - what is the metal thing used for, and what language is inscribed on it? Does the belt have any naval importance?
What are these Ottoman artifacts and what, if any, is their significance and inscriptions?

2Better resolution images on the text on the metallic object might be helpful for identification. The back of the belt is mirror imaged, and the buckle appears to be upside down. The metallic object may be a stacking lunch box, similar to the Tiffin boxes. A belt similar to this can be seen on Etsy– justCalOct 11, 2021 at 12:55
@justCal I added a higher resolution of a portion of the inscription, thanks!– DallaLiylyOct 11, 2021 at 18:27

The anchor might also be related to Ankara.– JanOct 11, 2021 at 19:05
1The belt buckle is very similar to one shown at Ottoman Uniforms.com which was used between 1909 and 1916.– justCalOct 11, 2021 at 19:43
