Lead object

Post by Graham_B » Fri Jan 11, 2019 5:57 pm

Attached are front and back photos of this buckle sized lead object. The frustrating thing is that I'm pretty sure that I have seen one of these in a magazine or book but cannot remember where.
It's beaten me so I would really appreciate any ID or hints in the right direction please.

Show your flo. I have an early Celtic ring with similar knobbles on it. Not saying this is a ring, but it resonates design-wise with some early stuff.

Hi Littleboot,

My FLO was also baffled, and he has passed it onto a few colleagues. I'm hoping that one of them will have seen one before.
There are some lead buckles on PAS, this doesn't match any of them, but the two holes seem to indicate that it was once riveted to something. The thing against the buckle theory though is the four teeth like projections, as I can't see how this shape would have worked.
Thank you for looking and commenting.

The two holes give the impression that it was once attached to a leather strap. x;
