It looks like it could possibly be a sword scabbard chape,....a tip protector. Not really sure if it's medieval, definitely old. The lion and oak look European to me...possibly early French or German. Just a guess on my part....good luck!..........McM

Perhaps a scabbard chape for a single edged weapon such as a falchion/Messer.
