Unique ID: KENT-E0E45A

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

A small incomplete cast copper-alloy Post-Medieval double looped or 'spectacle' buckle dating c. AD1550-1650.

Description: The buckle consists of two ovoid loops with small lentoid knops at either end of the central strap bar. The loops are undecorated, but highly bevelled particularly on the back which has left the back of the bars slightly concave. The buckle frame is bent upwards, typical of the type. One end of the frame has a filled notch for a pin. No evidence of the pin remains wrapped around the strap bar. The strap bar is slightly in relief. The buckle is a mid-grey green colour with some speckling light green colour.

Measurements: 22.76mm long, 17.32mm wide, 5.22mm thick (due to bending, frame 2.74mm thick) and 2.66g in weight.

Discussion: This common buckle type is reported extensively on the PAS database and a number of examples are illustrated (Whitehead 2003, 54), they tend to be dated to the late 16th-17th century.
