First picture show what I think is a mount from the rivets at each and the basic decoration, on the right I think fibula brooch fragment, then the bit I'm not sure about.
At first I thought modern but then what is it, on closer look the terminals do not appear to e broken and have a slight zoomorphic appearance - any comments or suggestions appreciated
Thanks for looking

I think your item is a medieval furniture fitting (zoomorphic indeed).
Have a look at this one for reference:
