BUCKLE

Unique ID: SOM-E68B17

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

An broken and incomplete cast copper-alloy double-looped buckle frame of early post-medieval date. The frame was formed of two conjoined ovals such that the sides incurve slightly; one of the loops has been lost due to old damage at its junction with the pin bar. The frame is shallowly bevelled externally on the upper surface; the lower surface is flat. The pin bar has a trapezoidal cross-section. It is extended at each end in a rounded knop. The pin is missing. The buckle frame has corroded to a variable red/brown colour with some patches of dark-green patina surviving in a few places.
