Box Buckle https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/artefact/medieval/buckles-and-buckle-plates/single-loop-buckles/box-buckle-54366.html Fri, 05 Apr 2019 09:20:46 GMT Single loop buckles Box Buckle  
Description: A zoomorphic 'box buckle' of the medieval period. It is cast in the form of a very stylised animal's head, possibly a devolved version of the ram's head type, an example of which is recorded as UKDFD 43647. The head is hollow and open at both ends. It has a rearward-projecting integral loop, but the pin is missing.

The exact use of these objects is uncertain, but it would seem that the free end of the strap was fed through the 'neck' of the animal's head and secured in tension by the pin, which was either hinged on the projecting loop, as the present example, or on the back of the head, as UKDFD 23207, although the latter form may represent a makeshift repair.

A closely similar example is recorded as UKDFD 29950. See also UKDFD 23088 and UKDFD 41876.

Description: A gilt copper-alloy buckle plate with openwork and relief-moulded decoration in the Romanesque style of the Norman and early Plantagenet period. The plate depicts a central lion passant regardant, standing left but looking back over its shoulder within an engraved linear and wavy-lined border. The buckle attachment lugs are now missing on the left hand side of the plate. The back is plain, with a recessed area behind the animal.
