Is this a mid century decor piece? Something Québécois? California art? I think it was found on Laguna Beach in the 70s. It "taxes me"! (Channeling Khan).

Coming soon to the History Channel... The Lost Gold of Laguna Beach!

Seriously, you didn't say how large it is but it looks like a French Antique brooch... Worn on ladies clothing.
You need to have it looked at by a antique jewelry dealer.

@Saryntha, first welcome to CCF. Second, could you please also post a pic of the reverse? If this is a medal, there might be evidence of that on the back. Thx.

It is big - 3" diameter, and reverse is attached. Looks modified to hang on a wall or on a ? Thank you for such quick responses. I think too big for a brooch.

I have seen similar items used to embellish pianos, furniture and carriages. Either side of the mounting there are two holes which appear to have been filled with solder. These would probably have been the mounting lugs.
The style is early C19th French Empire.
