I would have had that down as a buckle
Really interested to get someone to put a definitive ID on that one
Feel free to make a another ID post with just that brooch on it so as to draw peoples attention to it :thumbsup:

Some great finds there too, well done :clapping:

Ditto :thumbsup:

The brooch is very unusual and I'm thinking Hod Hill type but Alloverover will hopefully be along soon to correct that :D
Thanks figgis hopefully back on it this Sunday :thumbsup:

Can’t find any buckles with a spring so maybe it is a brooch after all, or a weird hybrid - possibly repurposed?! This is the nearest brooch to yours I could find…
