These metal stars are modern markers and used for various decorative ideas.
The old fashion star was used to mark the ends of the main house beams by the Pa Dutch. It helped home owners find them fast outside of their home. The one picture shows how they are used on a building.
This detailed usage information comes from a few sources who knows their local history.
** The stars were on the end of a rod that went through the entire house through the space below the floor and above the cieling below. It holds the brick walls from buckling. You may also find an X or S in our area. You may also find them on stone houses.**
** They are actually the ends on reinforcement bars for the house. They used different motifs for the ends. The "X" was a common one and it is what is on the ends of my house**
