Does anyone know what this is?  I found it whilst digging in the garden it looks pretty

    How big is it, Gg?  Are there any signs of where a pin was attached on the back?

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    I wonder if it is one of the ends of a boot mud scraper?  It looks very nice.

    ..there looks like an inscription on the bottom left and right...can you read what they are?

  • Could it be a fire mark? They were attached to the wall to show which company was insuring the building.

    I had a thought it looks similar to old tea strainers but still not sure, I looked up on Google

    I cleaned it up last night it looks more of a silver colour and like mark bottom right on the back of 11

    Here is another picture of how it looks now

    Looks to me as if it could be one of those decorative pieces of metals you find on old furniture
