    Based on the size, I was think belt or strap-end as well.

    Jeff_of_pa got it right... that type of object has previously been identified here in the What-Is-It? forum as a button-cover, to keep shoe buttons from getting snagged on something, such as tall grass. It was invented and US-Patented in 1922. See the original Patent diagram below, originally posted here long ago by our esteemed fellow relic-ID-helper BigCypressHunter. The peculiarly-shaped bar across its back lets it fit snugly over the button's shank.

    Shoe button cover is correct. But these were more fashion than function.

    As Victorian/Edwardian fashions faded in the early 20th C, the high-top, button down shoes (which covered the ankle) were replaced with simpler, lower shoes that often had a strap across the top of the foot with a single button. Since it was acceptable, starting in the 1920's, for women to show their ankles, they added a little bling to draw attention to them.

    The shoe strap was passed under the omega shaped bar on the back and, as TCBG points out, the shank fit into the catch on the bar.
