BUCKLE

Unique ID: BUC-87FCA6

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Post medieval cast copper-alloy asymmetrical buckle frame missing the pin. The frame has one rectangular and one D shaped loop. The outer edge of the rectangular loop is extended into points in the corners and centre and has a groove running down its lengh on the front, parallel with the side. The outer side of the outer edge of the D-shaped loop is stepped with a wider flatter piece running around it. At the centre of the D shaped loop the inner side projects inwards in a curve forming a wider oval area which is decorated with two transverse incised lines angling inwards in a chevron shape. The strap bar is narrowed and recessed.

Whitehead (2003) illustrates an identical seeming buckle (page 91, No.572) which he dates to c. AD 1575-1700.
