During renovation works in 1978, a large treasure was found at Salzburg. It comprises a lot of silver pieces and coins, dating the find to the time between 1290 and 1300. In this time, Vienna was occupied by the Duke of Bavaria, and the political unrest seems to have frightened the local popultion. Among the finds were a lot of different belt fittings (pic. 2). The buckle is made of silver and was partly gilded and decorated with black inlays. It probably was made about 1240.

The buckle is handcrafted from real bronze, suitable for a belt width of 45mm. Rivets, washers and instructions included, leather sold separately.
