    Possibly a part of a brooch or barrette.

    From what I can see from the pics, your mirror looks to be an early Victorian hand mirror that belonged to a ladies Vanity Set. Generally the Vic. Vanity Sets included a comb, brush (sometimes a large & a small brush,) and mirror. Hopefully you can detect the area to see if you can find the rest of the set.

    Neat find

    Thanks Breezie. It's an old site and will be heading back there soon.

    if not a brooch, then the backing for a drawer pull, that is the piece that attached to a drawer. I found one I think it was pewter. Your pic looks green to me, like copper alloy.

    It may well also be mirror related -- that is, a chunk of the frame to a table mirror, also Victorian.
    Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain

    That mirror may have a makers mark on the perimeter edge of the handle. Many are made of cemented or pitch filled thin sterling silver as that's what I look for in old vanity pieces in antique stores.
