BUCKLE

Unique ID: SF-8BD1F5

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

An incomplete copper-alloy arm or bar from a locking buckle of Post Medieval date. It is missing the frame due to old breaks, now worn.

It is U-shaped and hexagonal in section. It narrows towards the terminal where there is a knop decorated with deep diagonal grooves radiating from its centre. The opposite end is recessed with a hexagonal shaft to accommodate the now missing frame. All faces display coarse filing marks from finishing.

This buckle arm measures 39.33mm in length, 23.48mm in width, 4.62mm in thickness, 4.78g in weight.

There is a similar example from Norwich (Margeson, 1993, 26, no. 139) and recorded on the PAS database (SF9983), (SF10141), (SF-5E8AA2).
