It is most likely a shield from the 1470's. It's lack of adornment and obvious scarring suggests its use in actual combat, as opposed to a high ranking officers display or dress item. It's shape indicates use by a foot bound soldier as opposed to horse back. Very nice piece.

If there's a round hole with a flange on the other side, like about 6", it was originally designed as a scoop for a 4 barrel carburetor on a car, many of which got adapted as scoops on the left side of dressers. I think someone even sold them commercial with the brackets to do that.

The design was taken from the shields of 13th century foot soldiers. (so I heard.)
