Silver buckle; type as no 125, but rivets with sheet silver heads; from shoe or horse-harness?
Silver buckle with a semicircular attachment-plate with a flanged edge. Oval, faceted loop.
The front plate is silver, semicircular with a flanged edge projecting from the back. The folded flap attachment is made from the same piece as the front plate and is rectangular with a slot cut into the centre to accommodate the buckle-tongue.
There are two copper-alloy dome-headed attachment-rivets with silver sheet overlay on the heads.
The loop is oval with a faceted, octagonal section. It narrows from the centre towards the ends where it is secured by the folded flap attachment.
