    Colonial dude brooch??? I don't know where to start looking..

    Measures about 2" long.
    Back attachment is threaded. No sign of anything broken off on the back.
    Figure looks "colonial" to me, ie :wavy hair/ wig
    I'm not even sure how to Google this to start research.
    Look familiar to anyone?

    I think that would be considered a Ormolu Hardware Face Mount .. either a drawer pull or furniture appliqué

    Can't find it. I think it's an Art Nouveau period ( 1890-1914 ) applique. Probably gilded at one time. From furniture, a decorative box, something like that. It's a cast piece, too heavy, IMO, for a brooch. Cool find.


    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    The Bald Eagle photo...he/she posed for me, gave me it's best American look. I felt privileged to get the shot.

    Don't see that particular one on a quick search either, but some with similar characteristics:

    Can't seem to post it as a link but if you do a google image search for Ormolu Hardware Face Mount you will see some.

    I see that, very similar. I mention Art Nouveau because of the flowers.
