Being gilded.. maybe part of a luckenbooth type brooch? Scottish thing I think.
I have a fine pewter with glass stone example.
Just an input here. :thumbsup:

Surely part of a brooch, but just what a tease! :lol:
It doesn't look like its been in the ground too long, but long enough for a plough to smash it! :cry:

Could be part of a rather fancy buckle. Still nice to see that colour come up :thumbsup:

I find that the plating has usually lifted and gone from items even less than 100 years old. Maybe it depends upon the metal or how well it was prepared? I think my best is a gold plated 1918 penny made into a pendant.
