    Size and weight of it I think it might be a foot to a chair or table.

    Significant wear on one edge to reinforce this idea...

    I was thinking the same thing, a cap from a chair leg. Donít know what in the heíll that other thing is though, maybe an armadillo egg.

    Cap from a Chair or table at first I was thinking it looked like a end to a bike handle bars.But the chair idea seems more logical

    It's about the right size for the top or bottom of a cane or walking stick. I have seen a lot of furniture of the period and none had metal "feet". Their floors would have been destroyed using it that way.
