Clasp for a cloak or coat

This is a clasp that has two sides that join in the middle.

Metal, about 1920-30

Clasps such as this one, in the form of a pair of Pharaohs' heads facing each other, were very popular during the 1920s. It would probably have been sewn to either side of an evening cloak or coat collar as a fastener.
