Unique ID: SF-1BA746

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

A worn cast copper-alloy buckle frame of Post-Medieval date. The frame is annular in form with moulded decoration comprising a foliate outer edge and transverse grooves on the front face that give the buckle a five petalled flower form. At the centre of the frame is an integrally cast bar that is triangular in section and has a slight pin constriction at its centre. The entire object measures 29.32mm in external diameter, 17.95mm in internal diameter, 3.04mm in thickness and 4.75g in weight. This is an annular buckle of Post-Medieval date similar to examples from Norwich (e.g. Margeson, 1993: no. 157). It dates to the 16th or 17th centuries AD.
