Now, I fully realise this is probably going to be one of those items which will forever remain labelled "nope - not a clue" but I thought I'd post it up anyway.

As you can see, there is evidence of a pin protruding, which likely means it was meant to swivel (think of the bar that goes through your watch strap to attach it to the watch).

Buckle part, perhaps? Lord knows, but thanks for looking :thumbsup:

That's a curious looking item, I wondered if it might have been part of a book fitting, but I haven't neen able to find anything similar. Do you think it's a double hinge of some sort?

Thanks, Andy - book fitting is a very good shout and I hadn't considered a double hinge, which makes sense :thumbsup:

I should know what that is :? iknow I’ve seen one before but can’t remember where.

I hope a glass of wine might lubricate the brain cells :D
