The shape reminds me of the Black Mountain hourglass dulcimer-- wide and a little shortened.  Pretty!

It also could have been half of a pair of earrings. I remember seeing a pair like that a dulcimer festival a few years ago.

It could certainly be used as a Christmas tree ornament, in fact, I think I will!

I think it's a brooch that's lost it's pin though, and I doubt that it was made in Australia.

I was hoping someone else has one.

I bought this tiny (2" long) brass dulcimer at an antique fair here in Australia.

It looks as though it may have once been a brooch. Does anyone know anything about it?
