Timeless are pleased to offer a very large Byzantine Bronze Buckle, dating well over a thousand years old.

  

The buckle displays a rectangular frame decorated with corner mouldings, and an open-looped bronze pin. The pin is also made bronze, but with a slightly different composition to the frame (which has resulted in a different patina colour).

 

This is normally due to the frame being cast but the pin being cold-worked from sheet bronze - however, the moulding which decorates the pin where the loop meets the shaft suggests that the pin was also cast.

 

It's a bit of an enigma!
