Undated copper alloy strap fitting, Length: 55 mm, width: 15 mm, thickness: 11 mm, weight: 40.61g.

The object is incomplete and is sub rectangular in form and cross section. It consists of a upper bar with an undulating upper surface which curves round at one end then is broken, suggesting an oval shape when intact.
