    I came across this large brass brooch at a Goodwill. At first I thought it was part of a belt with the hook but it has an old "C" clasp pin back. Thought it was cool but I cannot figure out what purpose the large hook is for. It measures just a little over 3" wide by 2" long and there are no markings on the pin. Any help you can give me will be appreciated. Thanks for looking!

      Hi! Google images for antique sash buckle pin :-)

      Then go there to read about the use and history:

      I looked at the link that you sent. So this pin was worn at the waist to look like a buckle. I would never have guessed! Thank you for the information!
