To me it appears to be early modern styleStyle dating to Baroque period, but still found on stuff into the 19th century.

How big is it?

Bronze was much more valuable in ancient times. Things, such as armor, which I expect to be heavy, are always lighter and thinner than I expect them to be.

So true Joe, when you see actual armor hinges and buckles they are thin and tiny!  Even fibula's are relatively small

Thanks for your feedback Gents, So as I understand it is early modern manufacture, most likely Europe made!!!
