Massive gold belt buckle, hollow. Carved all over its upper surface with zoomorphic interlace, the design picked out in tiny circles and inlaid (except on the loop) in niello. Three large plain hemispherical bosses connect with sliding catches on the back-plate, which opens on a hinge. Two birds heads are situated on either side of the two upper bosses and between these is a circular plate which acts as a stop for the tongue of the buckle. This plate is decorated with a complex animal interlace; the tongue protruding from it is ridged and otherwise plain. The buckle loop has two panels of interlace, not nielloed, on the upper surface and the rest is plain. The buckle loop is hinged independently, and the tongue plate also moves on a separate swivel; basal disc.
