BUCKLE

Unique ID: YORYM-605B2F

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

An incomplete copper-alloy sword belt hanger buckle of Post-Medieval date, c.AD 1500 -1630. The buckle is a double loop rectangle, though one end has been lost to worn breaks. An integral semi-circular suspension loop projects from one side, above the bar. The sides of the frame are angled and no decoration is present.

The metal has a mid-green patina and is worn. The buckle is 38.3mm long, 34.7mm wide, 3.7mm thick and weighs 7.2g.

A similar example is illustrated in Whitehead p.76, no.472 and is dated to circa AD 1500 - 1630. The suspension loop on the published example is at right angles to that on the current example.
