Can you tell which parts are broken and which end naturally?

It looks like the centre and one end appear to split in two around a rivet (?) hole and that the item is broken at tat point - i.e. it should continue.  But what about the wider flat end - is it a planned end or also a break?

I wonder it this is a small fragment of a larger openwork disc??

Thanks a lot S.C

You are right , one end Could be the end of a Rivet and the other one brocken.

After your explanation I think It Could be Patera Egger piece, neither fíbula nor clothing item


 Thanks a lot again!

That was my thought too.  Though not sure about the rivet.

I have had a consignor send several very similar objects. I returned them because I was unable to identify them.
