Lily pad & flower jewelry piece
Is this a brooch? I can't figure out the attachment - maybe it is part of something else? Found in the yard of an early 1800s house.

The "lily pad" looks like a painter's palette to me. Very clever.
You cannot remove people, items, or events from their historical perspective and make any sort of rational judgment or draw any reasonable conclusions about them.

about how high is the flower lifted off the "lily pad"?

Very good! I almost took back the lily pad description before I posted but I went with my first impression and just let it fly

DC Matt is right about it being a palette. Those would be paint brushes poking through the thumb hole.

Excellent Thanks all!

Since it has a flower and floral markings, I'm going with a lily pad brooch. Neat find Bramble Breezie
