    Rosettes or Furniture

    Found these matching decorative pieces at the same site and was wondering anyone knew what they were? The hole in the middle is so small that I don't think they could part of a drawer pull or furniture.

    Possibly from a travel trunk.

    He then explained to me that it was commonly believed that on a certain night of the year…
    a blue flame is seen over any place where treasure has been concealed.

    The question posed in the title is are these ''Rosettes or Furniture?"
    The answer, I think, is that they are both!
    I think they they might be furniture rosettes, similar to the Duncan Phyfe rosette shown here.
