Hi all

I found this odd little thing today.

The metal is very thin and consists of s decorated plate on a sort of spinning hinge at the back.

Could anyone offer any help on this for me?

My thanks in advance. 🙂👍

Looks very similar to a Dungaree type clasp/clip :Thinking:

Yes, or braces.

I thought it was very old, but now I am not sure. It has me stumped.

Looks very much like a cloth strap / belt clasp, as said, dungaree or similar, or the braces to keep you trousers up, quite modern pressed / stamped metal
