One Two Buckle My Shoe


Found a little buckle at the weekend….cleaned it up and thought hmmm it’s about time I put all my little buckles together and made a display. So for your delight and delectation may I present the beautiful buckles of Great Eversden:

So from left to right top to bottom:

Type IIIc 1600-1700

Type IIId 1600-1700

Type IIb 1600-1700

Type IIIb 1600-1700

Type IIIc 1500-1600

Type IIIc 1485-1600

1400-1500

1400-1500

1850-1900

1850-1900

1450-1600

1350-1500

Type Ib 1250-1350

What I love about the buckles is the fact they were used daily and were so functional, no zips or poppers, studs or toggles….just a good old fashioned leather strap and a buckle…until the leather broke or the buckle split or the pin dropped off….
