I am hoping this is a Sword Quillon from a hand guard off a hunting sword or short sword? Any thoughts? It is broken on one end, NOTE the ball end as it seems to match a sword Quillon? Please share your thoughts for identification. NO, it is not a drawer pull, haha. This colonial site has produced Spanish Reales, many flat buttons and other unique artifacts from Wake County, NC. THANKS FOR CHECKING IT OUT

Don't know what it is, but don't think a quillon as there would need to be a hole in the flat part for the blade to pass thru..................
Looks like you're on a great site!
