Explanation:
Sportschmuck - jewelry or decorative items worn while doing sports.

"Treen" is a special term in antiques for certain types of turned wooden objects = Drechselarbeiten.

Hollow ware is difficult: I believe these are also "Drechselarbeiten" but then hollowed out. I have not come across a specific terms for this in German.
