BUCKLE

Unique ID: SF-1B524B

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

An incomplete cast copper-alloy buckle and plate of Meols type 12, dating c. 1250-1400. The buckle frame is single looped, with curved sides, a thickened outer edge and an offset strap bar-around which the wound pin is still attached. Hinging from the strap bar itself via two projecting 'tabs' (that flank a central rectangular cut out which accomodates the pin) is a plain folded sheet metal plate, its rear portion broken away in old damage. Preserved in good condition with an even green patina, it measures a total of 24.04mm in length, the frame being 13.01mm wide and 3.23mm thick at its thickened outer edge. It weighs 1.93g.

For parallels to the frame of this example, see Egan (2007) p. 91, nos. 516 (without the moulded decoration) and 554 (without the sheet roller).
