Medieval or post-medieval plain cast copper-alloy double-loop buckle frame. The frame has two oval loops with bevelled outer and inner sides on the front; the back appears flat. The strap bar is narrowed with a triangular cross-section. The pin is missing but dark orange corrosion product at the pin bar shows that it would have been of iron. It is 24.9mm long, 20.3mm wide and 2.2mm thick, it weighs 3.0 grams. It is likely that simple forms like this were in use by c.1350 (Egan and Pritchard 1993:22, 82-3, cf no.332), and they continued into the 17th century.

A damaged and incomplete medieval buckle with integral hollow box plate cast in copper alloy (15th century AD). The frame is almost entirely missing apart from a very small part of the side at the junction. At the junction of frame and plate is an oval perforation. Retained in place is a long wire pin of circular cross-section, its tip bent to one side. It has corroded to a more red colour than the box plate and was of a different alloy. A thin, waisted element connects the frame and the trapezoidal plate. The box plate is hollow to accommodate the strap which was held in place by a p…

Medieval buckle with elaborate openwork plate of heavily tinned copper alloy (c. 13th century AD). The frame is rectangular with a protruding lip at the centre of its outer edge with a groove to act as a pin rest. The pin itself is looped in situ around the frame but has been significantly truncated as a result of old damage. The plate is formed of a single thick sheet folded round on itself at the frame end. The lower fold is narrow compared to the upper, and far shorter, just long enough to incorporate the notched cut out for the pin while retaining integrity. The upper part of the f…

A post-medieval double-looped buckle dating to c. 1660-1720 AD. The frame is sub-trapezoidal with concave notched ends each with two conjoined circular openwork apertures. The sides are pronouncedly concave with pointed and grooved knops at the junction with the apertures. The sides are thickened at the pin bar.. The latter appears integral to the frame, though narrowed and recessed. Patches of iron corrosion product are attached to it on both surfaces. The front of the buckle is moulded while the back is flat. It is curved in profile probably as a result of its use as a shoe or …

A damaged and incomplete copper-alloy post-medieval buckle plate. The plate was formed of one copper-alloy sheet, cut and bent over on itself. It is broken in half, at the point where it would have looped round the buckle frame. From the broken point it continues with plain rectangular tabs on either side before narrowing to a waist of 7.7mm. The squared off terminal is flared out at 11.9mm wide. In addition to this hole at the terminal there is another hole central with the widest point; neither rivet survives. No decoration is visible on either surface. The metal is a general…

A corroded cast copper-alloy double-looped buckle of post-medieval date (c. 17th century), incomplete in so far as it is missing its pin. The frame is formed of a pair of sub-oval loops with a single triangular protrusion (moulded trefoils or lis) at the central outer edge, and with similar protrusions at each end of the bar set at the centre of trefoil sides. The side elements of the trefoils at the outer edges provide two of a total of six petals around a central pellet, giving a moulded flower at these points. The front of this buckle is flat, with bevelled edges, whilst the reverse…

A broken and incomplete medieval cast copper-alloy buckle frame missing its plate, pin and much of its frame. The frame was oval before old breaks halfway along one side and just before the outer edge respectively. The outer edge is offset and recessed in the centre to take a sheet roller with central low groove which survives in place. The outer edge has large rounded knops flanking the recessed centre. Egan (2007, 86) suggests that this type (Meols Type 11) dates to the medieval period (c. AD 1250-1400).
