Timeless are pleased to offer an intriguing little Bronze Buckle with an integral openwork plate, dating well over a thousand years old.
The Byzantine Empire was essentially the continuation of the Roman Empire following its collapse in Western Europe in the 5th century A.D. This enigmatic little buckle, missing its prong, is a remnant of that long-gone empire that lasted a thousand years after the fall of Rome.
