What is it?

I bought this antique piece last week.
Haven't a clue what it is; hopefully someone here can identify its function.
Hallmarks identify this piece as sterling silver, manufactured in Birmingham in 1909
Length approximately 3cms
Cheers

Re: What is it?

What can I tell...?

Just stating the obvious... It's a fastener of some type.

Something placed between the clip and the bead slides up to secure it. The "hook" holds it from the other side, e.g. a button hole.

Very dapper. I think it would suit you perfectly and go to good use. I love how these items have a story... from by a gone era.

Styling it all the way Sammy!

You make it sound like I'm not the type of chap to use it.

Ring around.
