Very heavy, solid brass.
Any ideas on what it’s from or possible age?
I’m guessing a handle from a cane or possibly an umbrella.
Maybe just from some other decorative type piece.

It's probably to small for a cane handle but without any attachment points except for the possibility of it having attached at the break. I would think maybe a drawer handle if it attached at the tail which is broken away.

Definitely a cool item I would try and drill and tap it for a screw and put it to work as a new handle for something. Or even a pull for a ceiling fan chain.

I have see hose bibs with all manner of animals as the turn handles. Always solid brass.

Customers house I’m at now has the coolest frog as a turn handle. Gotta find me one of them!

Cool find!
