Found these today while out for a quick hunt on my property (I live on an 18th century New England farm). #1 appears to be a shoe buckle, but I am not sure about #2. Maybe a broach? If anyone can date either or knows any more info please let me know. Cheers!

IMHO, #2 looks like a furniture escutcheon. Although looking at the reverse, not sure.

I'd guess #1 is more like a hair clip...I've found a few similar, and assuming yours is the same, it's way too flimsy to have a utilitarian use such as a shoe buckle

Agreed with hopper about the item. It is too small for any shoe buckle I know about and is asymmetrical.
