    Anybody familiar with this decoration?
    Thin stamped brass. Looks to have been gold plated at one time.
    Small thread holes on each side.

    Kind of reminds me of a bonnet adornment I found awhile back, but the Scottish Terrier has me thinking fine imported whiskey.

    Suspect 1860’s?

    Little bit bigger than a quarter.

    Pendant front? Stick pin topper? Brooch? 1890's?

    I like the pendant idea. The two holes 180 degrees apart would fasten it together.Congrats on the find.
    When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

    Little bit better picture.
    Very thin and slightly bigger than a quarter.

    Hmmm... Better pic. Thx.

    The item still says late Victorian to me. Maybe not a jewelry piece, but with those screw holes you can bet it was never attached to a bottle.

    Maybe a furniture ornament?

    Those holes are the size of a sewing needle.

    Then we're back to jewelry. How about a dog head medallion from a chatelaine?
