Recently I purchased a vintage Bernina 831 (like the 830 but with fewer decorative stitches). It came with these 2 feet, which I've never seen before. I'm thinking they are not original Bernina feet but am interested in their purpose.

Thank you

They look like shanks for attaching snap-on feet.

The one on the right is the Snap on shank.

The one on the left looks like a combination of a low shank adapter and someone's generic low-shank-to-snap-on adapter

There is no such thing as pressure foot.

I was thinking the same.
The term is presser foot or feet. Or shank in this case. There is a lift/drop bar (or button) that exerts or releases pressure on the shank to raise or drop the presser foot. And some machines have ability to adjust the pressure and/or the distance so that the presser foot is not an "all or nothing" drop on the fabric.

But of course your question was still very clear because many of us understand that people commonly misuse the term pressure foot.

So glad you got your answer and happy sewing!
