I can't tell you where it was made but it was made for a wheel lock. The square sockets near the top act as a turnkey for the lock of a wheelock mechanism. I'm used to seeing rather plainer versions of these with pistols, given the quality of this piece it may perhaps be for a wheelock hunting rifle or musket ( there were fine quality wheelock rifles made for hunting during the later 16th and 17th centuries ).
