The U-channel collar of the OP puts it into the pre-1920 area, maybe even into the 19th century, I would like to see the head.

Decorated and/or engraved metal mounts were very common in german bow making from the mid 19th onwards. Below two more early examples, mounted at Abeille sticks, the upper later certified as Christian Friedrich Knopf workshop 1860 (sorry for the bad photo).

I would detract the adjuster capsula from the wooden core and turn it to the right direction:D.

Were these hand engraved with a burin or stamped in some way?
