    Round, old, and deep

    Found this object about 8-10 inches down in a backyard that backs to a creek (former farmland). The underside is concave. See pic for scale. Any ideas on ID and age would be most appreciated. Thanks & HH.

    It displays all the characteristics of being a rosette. Here is a reconstruction of yours to show you what the back probably looked like.

    Agree, Horse rosette.

    creskol - Love your "artists rendering" of how the item looked.

    While I have aimed in my postings to be irenic and conciliatory, rather than polemic, I have yet endeavored to set forth the
    truth, let it favor or impugn whom it might. Any notice of misrepresentations or mistakes occurring in these prose will be most thankfully received
    by the author.

    Two things I see,....
    1- Looks like pewter to me
    2-Looks like part of it is broke (mabe a hinge)
    Anyway it looks to me like a pewter top for either a sugar bowl or a inkwell.With the final broke off as well.
    being it's so small I'd go with inkwell first.
    Like this one sorta...............

    Thanks, Pete. That's another great theory and that was actually my first guess when I held it in my hand fresh from the dirt. After the ideas purported above by creskol and DCMatt, I did some research and it does appear to fit into the mold of a horse bridle rosette. See the pic of the example below. Thanks to you and all for your attention to this object. I will marked this post "Solved."

    That's cool man, just given another look at it.As I can not see from the pic. where it protrudes out on the opposite like it does on the top (if that's what I'm seeing)? But if your happy I'm happy.
    Take Care,
    Pete,

    Here's another for ya! Brass though.
