Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Post Medieval copper alloy double-looped buckle, probably dating to the 16th century. The buckle has two oval loops with a central bar flanked by knops. The buckle frame is D-shaped in cross section and with the outer edge of each frame expanded and moulded into a rossette. Dimentions: length 42.0mm; width 30.5mm; thickness 3.2mm; it weighs 9.12g. Such buckles tend to be attributed a later 16th-century date (Egan 2005, 35; ref. 88, found in a 17th century context but assumed to be residual), although the type must pre-date 1545 as it was found on the Mary Rose (Gardiner ed. 2005, 1…

Tinned cast copper alloy trapezoidal shoe or knee buckle with rounded expanded ends and a drilled frame for a separate spindle. The frame is D-shaped in section with a straight inner edge and a bevelled outer edge. The outer edge of each loop has a flattened knop with moulded oblique grooves which extend on to the frame. There are moulded transverse ridges around each of the spindle holes, on the upper surface of the frame, and flattened, square knops on the back of the frame, below the spindle holes. Each of the spindle holes retains a short length of the steel spindle but the majorit…

An incomplete cast copper-alloy buckle plate dating to the Medieval period, c. 1250-1400. It is rectangular in plan, with a single circular rivet hole present at each corner and another at the centre of the plate (giving a total of five). Projecting from the front of the plate are two 'tabs' that flank the cut-out section designed for the accomodation. These elements bend around to form a secondary shorter 'plate' as opposed to mirroring exactly the size of its counterpart. The outer surface of the buckle plate demonstrates heavy traces of gilding, though is otherwise undecorated. Pres…

An incomplete copper alloy Medieval to Post-Medieval double looped buckle, probably dating to c. AD 1350-1650. The surviving frame comprises of a single oval loop, with the second lost to worn breaks. The frame is D-shaped in cross section with a narrowed central bar, flanked by knops. The bar is similarly D-shaped in cross secion. A copper alloy sheet pin survives wrapped around the bar. Areas of black may suggest traces of a linseed oil coating. Dimensions: length 19.9mm; width 21.4mm; thickness 2.7mm; weight 2.69g. The lack of any decoration makes it difficult to suggest anything …

A complete cast copper-alloy buckle and plate dating to thje Medieval period, c. 1250-1400. It demonstrates an oval 'D' sectioned frame (of Meols type 2) with a recessed pin-rest at its thickened outer edge and a recessed offset strap-bar, around which is the copper-alloy wound pin. Attached to the latter is the plate, composed of a single piece of sheet metal which has been folded over on itself and a notch cut out of it to accomodate the pin, the plate itself being riveted together at its back edge by the presence of two parallel dome-headed circular-sectioned copper-alloy rivets.

An incomplete copper alloy double looped buckle, of Post Medieval dating (c.AD 1550 to c.AD 1650). Only around 75% of one of the buckle loops remains with the other loop, pin and buckle plate all now missing. When complete it is presumed the buckle had semi-circular loops. At the outer edge of the remaining loop is a pointed moulded knop with a zoomorphic terminal consisting of moulded eyes and ears. The reverse of the frame is flat and undecorated. The reverse of the knop is slightly concave. The buckle frame has a brown coloured uneven surface patina. Abrasion, caused by movement wh…
