I must admit I've never seen one like that before, as for the heraldry ID that is a difficult one as the red rampant lion seems to have been the go to symbol in the Medieval period, perhaps check local families who were in the area back then?

Checkout the "CORNWALL" Arms...
https://coadb.com/surnames/cornwall-arms.html

The Arms shield being on a lozenge could indicate that it was a woman's horse harness pendant.

What county was it found in?
