BUCKLE

Unique ID: SF-A11AF4

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

An incomplete cast copper-alloy asymmetrical double-looped buckle frame of Post-Medieval date. One loop is trapezoidal in form with thickened outer edge and moulded transverse grooves. The other loop is D-shaped in form and missing its outer edge due to old breaks. The loops are separated by an integrally cast bar that is triangular in section. The entire buckle measures 15.03mm in length, 16.95mm in width (incomplete), 2.33mm in thickness and 1.12g in weight. This is a small buckle frame of Post-Medieval date with a near identical example published from London (Egan, 2005: no. 101). It is of probable 17th century AD date.
