What kind of components are these?

They do not have any marking, one is bigger than the other. Both have 4 pins, and 4 coils.

They come from an old Philips CRT.

    \$\begingroup\$ These are common-mode chockes. They're 2 inductors which are magnetically coupled. Yes, that makes them a transformer as well ! You could use them as a transformer as well. But they're only 1:1 transformers so that limits the applications. These are used to block high-frequency signals from getting to the mains connection for example. You see them mainly in switcher mode mains power supplies. \$\endgroup\$ – Bimpelrekkie Aug 27 '17 at 13:53
