    Are you sure it's a thingy? Could it be either a what's-it or a thingamajig? I'm so confused, I never can tell the difference :D:D:D:D

    Half a belt buckle, but the bar has become detached. See the two places where it would have been?

    Pretty useless as it is then unless it can be transformed into something

    It would make a splendid hat or jacket ornament, sewn on. Might even be able to carefully wire it on to a clip back.

    I agree, it is very similar to an Edwardian nurses belt buckle I had last year.
    It sold for £100

    Also the curved piece that hooks onto the other side of the belt buckle is gone (bottom of pics 2 &4). Perhaps a hole for an "O" ring for a necklace (top of pics 1 &3) could be drilled. There is already a pock mark there. Rough edges could be filed off.

  16. That piece is from what is known as a nurses belt. I do not know about the Edwardian part, but I do know it is called a nurses belt. Each piece is hooked to the next piece with 2 "O" rings. The part you have is one of the pieces of the buckle that has lost the flat bar on the back for the other half of the buckle. I thought it was sterling, but I have learned that it is silver plate. I used to wear it a lot, but now this 80 yo is too big around the belt line area to wear it. Need to add about 6 more pieces! Gus is right! and so is daveydempsey.
