A part of a Post Medieval Buckle dating from about 1660 - 1720 and made of copper alloy. It appears to have been a single looped buckle and most of the frame survives but only a tiny part of the bar. The breaks are exceedingly worn, so the possibility that it was a double looped buckle cannot be ruled out.

The outer edge if convex and is decorated with a border of punched dots. The wide frame is decorated with punched lines forming leaf motifs, and depressed dots surrounded by rings. The designs contain surviving gilding. The sides of the frame are bi-concave, and there is a slight knop at the end of the bar. The pin and plate are missing.

Length 20.92mm, Width 26.49mm, Thickness 2.42mm, Weight 3.98g

The buckle has similarities to those on page 98 and 99 of Buckles By Ross Whitehead.
