Unique ID: DENO-1CAA81

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

An incomplete Medieval copper-alloy single loop buckle frame with integral forked spacer, dating from c. AD 1350 - 1450. The buckle loop is oval in plan and a rounded triangle in section, it has a lipped outer edge to serve as a pin rest and a notched recess at the strap bar and between the arms of the forked spacer for taking the pin. The pin is formed of a tapered copper alloy strip folded around the axis bar with a moulded ridge across the start of the looped section. The oval loop and ends of the forked spacers are broken. A similar complete example can be seen in Whitehead's, 'Buckles 1250-1800', 2003, p36, number 214.
