    I agree with probable bridle rosette.

    Yes, it is a horse bridle rosette... and it is an old one. Stamped sheetbrass disc, whose back was filled with solder, and a "staple-shaped" brass wire crossbrar for attaching to the bridle's leather straps, means it is from the early to mid-1800s.

    Nice that it still has the original attachment on the back where the leather harness strap fed through.
    On the examples, I find this is usually missing.

    Nice find,
