A copper alloy rectangular Post Medieval two piece shoe or knee buckle with a drilled frame for a separate spindle, dating from AD 1660 - 1720. The spindle, chape and pin are missing. The frame is symmetrical in plan and is moulded at the front and flat and plain at the rear. When viewed from the side, it has a downward curving profile. Above each spindle hole there is a moulded roundel, with two steps on each side. At the centre of each outside edge of the frame there are three incised lines in a chevron pattern forming the pin rest. The frame has a white metal coating. It is 23mm long, 16mm wide and 3mm thick. 3g.

Whitehead (1996) illustrates a similar buckle on page 99, no.617, which is dated from c.1660-1720.
