Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: the Vale of Glamorgan
Workflow stage: Published Find published
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.

Medieval cast annular buckle or open frame brooch of Medieval date, and probably dating from the late 13th to the mid 15th century. The frame is slightly oval and is relatively substantial for a brooch, but has both a restriction and notch for the pin on either side of the frame. The frame is of sub-triangular section, with a rounded outside edge and near-perpendicular (to the underside) inside edge. The frame has a discernible casting flaw on the inside edge and does not carry any decoration.

Cast copper alloy single loop buckle with a plain circular frame, probably dating from 14th to the early 15th century (Ottaway & Rogers 2002, 2886). There has been confusion in categorising annular brooches and annular buckles, Egan’s (in Egan & Pritchard 1991, 64-5) definition of brooch frames having a constriction or a hole for the pin, would result in this example being categorised as a buckle. The frame is slightly oval, possibly as a result of distortion and is circular in cross-section. The pin is still attached and has an open loop around the frame. The pin is ‘D’ shaped …

Cast copper alloy sub-rectangular buckle frame of 15th to 17th century date. The frame has a wide pronounced lip with angled sides. The bar is thinned with a central expanded area indicating the position of the missing pin. This area would suggest the buckle had a folded sheet plate, which is now lost. The sides are concave and the outside edge of the frame is rounded.

Annular ring of copper alloy. This is likely to be a simple annular or oval buckle frame of Medieval date, probably 13th –15th century. The ring is plain with a simple notch on one face to house the pin. The frame is expanded at the point of the notch. The profile of the frame is generally ‘D’ shaped. It is often difficult to distinguish buckles of this type from simple brooches, and there remains a possibility this item is a plain annular brooch.
