    Huntindog is on the right track. Could also be half of a brooch. That rectangular part at the bottom of both pictures is where the other half would attach (I think). Looks 19th c.

    My initial thought was... part of a Victorian sash buckle as well.

    It might be that my eyes are playing tricks on me, but there looks to be a patent number on this tab.

    For any readers here who don't already know it, here's a relic time-dating tip. If the object is American-made and has a marking saying "Pat" or "Patent(ed)" followed by a number rather than a date, it is no older than the early-1900s. For US-patented objects, the change from using a date to a Patent number happened sometime in the 1920s, if I recall correctly. Somebody here might know the exact year, but my now very elderly brain has forgotten it.
