BUCKLE

Unique ID: WILT-F48826

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

An incomplete cast copper alloy D shaped double loop buckle dating to the period c. AD 1550 - c.1650.

The frames edges remain even are rather fine and do not bevel. The buckle has moulded roundels on the outer edge of each loop, and at either end of the strap bar. On the roundels on the both the outer edges is a flower design. The pin majority of the pin is missing, but the attachment end is visible, but highly corroded. The buckle does not lie flat, neither does it balance on its central strap bar. This is due to the inward bend of both loops.

Overall, the buckle is 43.21mm in length (excluding pin), 24.83mm in width (maximum) and weighs 7.32g.

A parallel to this buckle can be found in Whitehead (2003) "Buckles" page 51, No. 410.
