A friend of mine found this piece in what remained of an old two story farm house that was on some property he purchased. I'm not sure how old the house was but he said the top floor had collapsed leaving basically a shell filled with a lot of debris. He found this piece in what he thought to be an old chest of drawers along with vintage gold and shell carved cameo brooch.
The piece is approx. 2 and 5/16" long (not including the top bale), and 1 and 9/16" wide. It weights approx 20.12 grams. I can't find any marks on the piece, so I would like any assistance in identifying a maker, style or an age if possible.
