Part of a cast copper alloy, single loop buckle with a sub-triangular frame and a narrowed offset strap-bar. The strap-bar is now missing. The missing strap-bar would have accommodated the buckle's pin and possibly also a sheet metal buckle plate. A groove on the front of the buckle's frame shows where the pin rested; this feature is probably the result of wear rather than a deliberately cast notch. The buckle is also slightly distorted. Width 55mm, length 21mm, weight 9.5grams (NB dimensions follow those defined by Egan and Pritchard 1991, 56, fig.35). Medieval closer dating of this …

Incomplete cast copper alloy buckle with integral, hollow, tapering plate (also known as a box chape) perforated by two rivet holes. The end of the plate is missing as is most of the frame, although traces of the iron pin survive. The front of the plate is incised with longitudinal lines and traces of either tinning or silvering adhere to the surface of the plate. It is not certain whether the incised lines are decorative features or keying for the plating. Surviving length 30mm, maximum width 16.5mm, maximum thickness 6mm. Probably an example of the late fourteenth century to early fi…

Cast copper alloy single loop D-shaped buckle with a frame embellished with an ornate outer edge, and a narrowed and offset strap bar. The outer edge of the frame has a notched lip flanked on either side by a pair of transverse knops. Egan and Pritchard have published a close parallel, recovered from excavations in London, which dates to c.AD1350 to c. AD 1400 (1991, 73, no.297). A broadly comparable date for the St Nicholas buckle is not unreasonable.

Recorded at the Hidden Treasure Finds Day at National Museums & Galleries of Wales. Medieval copper alloy buckle of unusual form. The buckle has broken and is distorted but is complete, except for the missing pin. The buckle has a single loop frame with a central bar. The outside edge of the frame is decorated with a projecting zoomorphic head and the inside edge has a ridged triangular projection. Together they appear to represent the head and tail of an animal, possibly a bird. The animal head design resembles buckle / brooches, such as Egan’s (1991) No 212, dated to c.1350-1400. E…

Copper alloy decorative mount with a zoomorphic design. The raised design is contained within a rectangular border and depicts a bird with rear facing ribbed wings and head facing upwards. The cells between the design originally carried red enamel, small traces of which survive and can be seen with the aid of a microscope. The mount was originally rectangular in shape with at least two of the corners carrying bronze rivets, one of which survives. The sides have corroded and little of the original surface survives.

Gilded buckle comprising of a trapezoidal frame with folded sheet plate of Medieval date, possibly 14th century.
