Morning All,
A lovely little buckle found in Norfolk.... think there are signs of enamelling, certainly there are 'dents' where it would have gone...
Any help with an Id of age much appreciated!
All the B
Alexander

If I was forced to guess - 1350 - 1450 asymmetric buckle
Nice little find :thumbsup:

In one way it looks early medieval, but in another way not quite as old. I'm on the fence with this one. :D

I know what you mean… it does feel a bit special in the hand….

It’s a beauty :Star: My immediate thought was Roman or very early medieval. I’ll have a look around my books.
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Right I’ve been trawling the books and it looks like it most closely aligns to 13th century french enamelled buckle. Basically limoge type. None are identical but there’s nothing else similar :thumbsup:
