art noveau but old...
In Response To: Look at this cool hat pin ()

think it may be art noveau or however you spell that word. there are some beautiful cloisonné pieces on the net. I have a sash buckle found near a battlefield that's not military but a art piece believed to be ladies that's brass. its Cupid riding a dolphin, has a spear not a bow.. the same identical picture is part of an Italian mosaic in Italy centuries old. I think yours is a 1800s piece when money was plentiful and would not be surprised pre civil war. might have had cloisonné enamel on it at one time. its definitely a keeper worthy of display. would be sign of wealth maybe worn by a plantation owners wife. brooch pin. or who knows gift to husband going to war, as in a sailor wife to husband....
