Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete cast copper alloy single loop spur buckle with an oval lipped frame and an integral triangular plate with an intact central copper alloy rivet. The plate tapers to an extension, at right angles to the plate, that houses a circular aperture, 4 mm in diameter, that would have been used as an eye to hold the loose strap end. These buckles were used to secure the spur leathers on the outside of the foot. The pin is missing but there is a notch for a pin rest in the lip of frame. The surface appears to have been tinned originally but now has patches of corrosion that obscure thi…

Cast copper alloy rim fragment from a bowl or cooking vessel with an internally bevelled rim that is triangular in profile and flush with the upper edge of the vessel. The body of the vessel curves downwards slightly to suggest a reasonably deep straight-sided bowl or a deep straight-sided everted rim, as seen on cauldrons, and the curvature of the rim suggests a diameter of about 280 mm. The bevelled rim itself is 5 mm thick which then tapers to the body which is 3.6 mm thick. There are patches of burnt organic material on the exterior of the fragment, which suggests that the vessel …

Incomplete tinned cast copper alloy trapezoidal shoe or knee buckle with a frame drilled for a separate spindle. The frame has notched concave ends, each with two circular openwork apertures, and notched bifid sides with iron corrosion product built up around them. The spindle is missing but would have been made of iron, which has left the corrosion, and would have held a chape and pin which are also both missing. Whitehead (1996) illustrates a similar example on page 98, no.613, which is dated from c.1660-1720.

Cast copper alloy double-loop oval buckle frame with a flat base and a trapezoidal profile in cross-section and a simple, narrowed, central pin bar. The frame has bevelled inner and outer edges and a flat upper face between these, creating a ridge on both sides. Part of the iron pin, which is rectangular in section, survives looped around the pin bar, but it is now surrounded by a lump of iron corrosion product, or iron oxide. Whitehead (1996) illustrates a similar spectacle buckle on page 54, no.310, which is dated from c.1500-1650.

Cast copper alloy sub-rectangular garter buckle with a drilled frame for a separate spindle. The frame has a bevelled internal edge and expands around the spindle holes. At either end of the spindle there is iron corrosion product, suggesting that the spindle within the tube is made of steel. The cast copper alloy tube around the spindle has one fixed spiked 'tongue' on it, to fasten the garter onto a boot. There is a slight groove in one outer edge of the frame which the tongue could rest on. Whitehead (1996) illustrates a similar garter buckle with a single spiked tongue on page …

Cast copper alloy rim fragment from a large bowl or cooking vessel with an internally bevelled rim that is semi-circular in section and narrows until it is flush with the body of the vessel. The body of the vessel curves downwards slightly to suggest a reasonably deep straight-sided bowl or a deep straight-sided everted rim, as seen on cauldrons, and the curvature of the rim suggests a diameter of at least 320 mm. But there is only a small fragment of the rim remaining so that the diameter is just an estimate. The bevelled rim itself is 4.9 mm thick which then tapers to the body which…

Cast copper alloy receptacle foot, probably from a cauldron, lozenge-shaped in plan, profile and section, with a large central mid-rib, flanked by worn and partly missing narrower ribs on either side. The upper section has broken away from the leg that would have supported the base of the vessel. The foot tapers to a triangular point as it has been worn on either side through use, but it would have originally been narrowed and pinched like the examples below. The back of the leg is flat and there are patches of burnt organic material on much of the back and the lower section of the fo…
