That thing is evil I tells ya! EVIL!!!! Get rid of it!
Just kidding. I just posted on another thread about finding stuff at thrift stores.
I used to make fun of my sister and her friends for going there, and now I go "thrifting"
when I have time. That pin or brooch you found looks pretty cool.
My guess is that you have found some old curtain tieback holders. I live in a century old apartment and there is a small 3X6" block of wood
in the wall on either side of my window. If the blocks had screws or nails sticking out of them (which I think mine did at one time) you maybe could
fit the ornament on the fixed block of wood and then place each end of the tieback band onto the hook at the back.
