An incomplete cast copper-alloy double-looped buckle frame of probable Medieval to Post-Medieval date. One oval shaped frame and the pin are missing due to old breaks. The surviving frame is oval shaped in form, oval in section with an expanded outer edge. This has extensive moulded decoration comprising a series of six triangular projections with fluting between them and parallel transverse grooves on their front faces. The moulded outer edge is separated from the sides of the frame by transverse grooves. The integrally cast bar is rectangular in form and square in section. This buck…

A worn cast copper-alloy buckle frame of Post-Medieval date. The frame is annular in form with moulded decoration comprising a foliate outer edge and transverse grooves on the front face that give the buckle a five petalled flower form.

An incomplete cast copper-alloy object, possibly a buckle frame of uncertain date. What appears to be the projecting pin rest and part of the frame survives intact, the remainder of the object now missing due to old breaks. The pin rest is flat, triangular in form and with a large central moulded groove. At its base it appears to curve outwards towards a frame before terminating in old breaks, the precise form of the frame uncertain due to old breaks. The front face of the object beneath the pin rest has moulded decoration comprising a curving band of S-shaped motifs. It measures 15.0…

An incomplete, corroded and damaged copper-alloy medieval sheet buckle plate. It is broadly rectangular in plan and all that remains is a single half, broken at the weaker tabs at the frame end and abraded through a perforation at the other. There is a central notch for the pin, which is flanked by two rectangular projections, the tabs, which would have folded round on themselves and extended into the other half of the fold. They provide a recess for the frame. The artefact has a mid-green patina with patches of off-white corrosion product. The attachment end has been bent downward…

A cast copper-alloy rectangular frame from a single-looped buckle or a clasp of medieval date. The frame has slightly convex sides, with transverse ridges in from each corner. The moulded outer edge is narrowed at its centre to possibly accommodate the original folding sheet or roller which has now been lost. The frame's bar is also narrowed and offset. As the plate (and pin) is missing it cannot be established whether this frame was from a buckle or a clasp. For rectangular buckle frames see Egan and Pritchard (1991, 96; fig. 61), and for clasps see ibid. (118; fig. 77). The frame ha…

A cast copper-alloy double-looped buckle of probably post-medieval date with pin and plate attached. The frame is formed of two conjoined ovals such that the sides incurve. The frame is bevelled both internally and externally on the upper surface and on the pin bar; the lower surface is flat. The pin bar thus has a trapezoidal cross-section with the pin still attached (L.: 18.7mm), and with the sheet plate looped around it. The pin is of thick wire construction and has been bent to one side following old damage. It has corroded to a dull red/brown colour. The plate is formed of a s…

A small cast copper-alloy double-looped buckle frame of medieval to early post-medieval date, incomplete in as much as it is missing part of its corroded iron pin. The frame is formed of two conjoined ovals such that the sides incurve. The frame is shallowly bevelled both internally and externally on the upper surface; the lower surface is flat. The pin bar thus has a trapezoidal cross-section. The buckle frame has a mid-/dark-green patina. Buckles of this size with double oval frames have been found in late medieval contexts (cf. Egan and Pritchard 1991, 82-83; refs. 341), but as the…

A corroded cast copper-alloy post-medieval double-looped buckle frame, incomplete in as much it is missing its pin. The pin bar extends beyond the edges in pointed lobes. The reverse is flat, and the frame bevelled internally and externally on its upper surface. This latter is decorated on each outer edge by a very worn five-petalled rosette with three outer petals and three inner. Viewed in profile one of the loops have been bent upwards slightly, and another downwards, as a result of old damage. The pin bar has also been raised slightly at the centre. The buckle has corroded…

An incomplete Medieval cast copper-alloy 'locking buckle' (c. AD 1350-c. 1450). In plan, the frame is rectangular with slightly rounded corners. The outer edge is 4.88mm in width and 3.24mm in thickness and is rabbeted throughout its width to accept and secure the U-shaped arm attached to the pin bar. The end of the bar is missing due to a break. There is a small notch on the upper face of the outer edge for a pin-rest. In side view the sides of the frame are expanded to accommodate the off-centred pin bar. The copper-alloy pin and chape are integral and the chape is cylindrical an…
