BUCKLE

Unique ID: KENT-E8FB63

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

An incomplete very worn, copper alloy double looped spectacle buckle of medieval to post medieval date, c. AD 1550 - 1650 (Whitehead 1996, 66).

Description: Only one loop remains intact and the pin is missing. The remaining frame consists of one D-shaped loop and D-shaped in cross-section. The frame has some moulded rossette decoration on the outer edge each lobe. The outer edge of the frame is bevelled and the back is flat. The strap projects past the loops at each side of the frame creating small knops. The rossettes are flanked with small knops.

Measurements: length: 34.14mm, width: 34.96mm, thickness: 2.35mm, weight: 7.27

Discussion: The type is a ubiquitous find on the PAS database and Whitehead (1996, 66) illustrates a number of similar examples.

Class: Double loop
