A post-medieval copper alloy strao fitting. The item has a flat trapezoid plate which is rolled over beneath itself at the narrower end. A small strip of copper alloy passes through the terminal and wraps around a ring of copper alloy. The wider end is incomplete. The surface of the plate appears to have an incised linear border, and perhaps further decoration within it.
