"yes that was my question too.... I'm not so sure about being made for foreigners.... unlike with Japanese and Chinese objets d'art I think the trade with Europe began later for this kind of stuff didnt it and this piece does look…"

Preethi replied to Penny Fidler's discussion and what about this one?
"Penny, what stumps me about your piece is also the lack of a plug on the back, if this were an ear ornament. Since I'm making other wild guesses, could this have been produced to be sold to westerners?"

Preethi replied to Penny Fidler's discussion and what about this one?
"I'm not aware of belt buckles or brooches of the type, but that doesn't mean they may not exist. I can also imagine someone trying to save a single earring by modifying it. Personally, I'm saving my single earrings for possibly making…"

"Yes I see..... I was forgetting how big some of these ornaments can be :) thank you Preethi for the reference although this does not explain the loop / pin on the back unless, at some later date, the ear stem was removed and the loop / pin added?…"

"thanks for your response Preethi.... I would say the loop is part of the original piece and the pin added later.... although they are similar to the ear ornaments this is quite big ...."

Preethi replied to Penny Fidler's discussion and what about this one?
"Interesting! I know these as ear ornaments from central India, but this looks like it has been modified for use as a belt and brooch. Does the loop and pin seem like part of the original piece or could they have been added on later?"

"Hello Penny, I think that this was originally a half of a belt buckle from the back side."

Penny Fidler replied to Penny Fidler's discussion and what about this one?
"I dont believe this was a brooch originally Betty. I think the pin has been added later. It measures about 2" in diameter."

"To my knowledge brooches are not traditionally worn in Ethiopia, though they are made and worn today in modern versions of tribal jewellery. Still, I would be very surprised if this was an Ethiopian piece. Do you know how large this piece is?"

Penny Fidler replied to Penny Fidler's discussion and what about this one?
"Yes... not the same at all but quite similar... I wonder if this one is also Ethiopian?"

"I just accidentally clicked away your pn, Peggy. Sorry. But you are right, at first sight this looks similar to my profile icon. Mine is a very rare kind of Ethiopian telsum pendant (it's a kind of small round box, around 3/4" in…"
