Umbrella handle? Just a wild guess.
Could it be the top of a cane-sword or cover for a knife?
: ) Like something out of Sherlock Holmes!
ZHOEN: A friend of mine who makes historical costumes e-mailed in agreement with you: "...on the topic of historical fashions, the mystery object you posted a photo of in your blog looks to me like a parasol or umbrella handle - especially parasol handles used to be that shape and size, and the decorations look rather feminine. Maybe early 20th century, from what I can see of the decorations - isn't there a bit of an Art Nouveau swirl in those engravings? But whatever it is, it's beautiful! "
