Close-ups of the coated wire - it was knotted
wire, Tigertail etc
Where am I?
I was able to expose the knots - seems like this is the type of wire made for stringing, from roughly the 1990s onwards. So that matches Chris' dating of the brass screw clasp.
Too bad, I was hoping for some evidence of a pre-WWII construction.
Thanks to all for your help!
