Aw, geez, no pressure here! If I told you the year it's set in, you'd get it instantly. I can't tell you the plot, either, no matter how general I make it. (And, keep in mind that it is a prop
from a sci-fi film, which by definition could be anything
: a ray gun, a handheld computer, a fire hydrant...)

The image, I don't know. Maybe. The setting? No.

Looks closer to Swift's Gulliver's Travels dress-wise.
I'll say that Verne is a dead-end for this film.

Great guess, but no.
But it is an extreme close-up of something else a gentleman of bygone days would have on his person.
