Found this in a field last week. Is silver plated on the detailed side showing a cherub painting a flower scene. The pin on the back of the item itself is missing but from what's left say it's probably early 1900's but the scene which may be hand inscribed on the silver kind of looks late 1800's to me. Can't find anything like it on the internet so may be a custom piece. A hunting buddy of mine believes it was a mass-produced item but if so thinking would find one online somewhere. The back looks like it was silver plated as well but must have been thinner and wore off. Any thoughts appreciated. Hopefully pics turned out all right.

Thanks for the response. The pin on the back is the variety of a pin fitted to a hinge on one side and the end of the pin latching into the tab on the other side. The pin part is. Broken off and missing. Was definitely made to be pushed through a cloth material. Supposed it still could have been some sort of bridal or saddle decoration.
