Italian, by the look of it, with the fasces on the centre (perhaps adapted from an earlier pattern, by the standard of workmanship).
Perhaps for headgear but could be for pouch or belt.
That's me out of suggestions I'm afraid - but someone should know.

I agree. It may have had a royal crown, now mostly cut back, and the royal coat of arms on its chest.
