BUCKLE

Unique ID: PUBLIC-ACA0D0

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find published

Post-medieval copper-alloy double-looped asymmetrical buckle frame, perhaps from a shoe, with white-metal coating. One loop is rectangular, the other D-shaped internally and with a pointed outer edge. The central bar appears to have been of iron and survives, although very corroded. There is a good parallel in Whitehead (2003, no. 598), also with an iron bar and white-metal coating; Whitehead dates this example to c. 1660-c. 1720. These buckles are usually small, and this one measures 26.37 x 21.61mm. It is 4.46mm thick and weighs 5g.
