I purchased this at a multifamily yard sale, so I have no idea what it could be. Looks like it might have been broken off of a larger piece, because it doesn't rest properly on its own. I can't tell if there's a makers mark on the bottom or if its just a busted area of metal.
The circumference is about the size of a half dollar, maybe a bit larger, its resting on my windowsill in the pictures.
I am very curious what it could be and if it is old, I think it might be, because the piece is not uniformly made, and has a nice patina to it. Either way, I like it, but I'm really curious what it is!
