A complete copper-alloy buckle of Post-Medieval date, circa AD 1550 - 1650. The buckle is a double looped oval with moulded decoration. Trilobed, trefoil mouldings are present to the outer edge of each loop and at either end of the bar. A D-sectioned pin remains around the bar with an open loop. The reverse is flat and undecorated.

The metal has a mid-green patina and is worn. The buckle is 50.2mm long, 29.7mm wide, 3.2mm thick and weighs 8.3g.
