BUCKLE

Unique ID: SOM-C1DF55

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

Post-medieval cast copper-alloy double-loop buckle frame with rectangular loops, with the loop of the broken pin in situ around the pin bar. The pin has been broken just beyond the loop. The loops are trapezoidal in cross section. The outer edges of both loops are straight other than a central rectangular projecting lobe. There is an incised line running down the centre of each projection acting as a pin rest. There are smaller projecting knops at the ends of the narrowed strap bar. The frame is 40.5mm long, 25.3mm wide and 3.7mm thick; it weighs 9.08g.

Whitehead (2003: 79) illustrates a direct parallel, no.486, which he dates to the 17th century.
