Interlacing Triscele Belt Buckle by St Justin of Penzance
Pewter belt buckle with interlacing triscele design 40mm
This buckle has a hinged bar for the belt to clip onto and the other end has a strong prong to push through the hole in the belt.
The triscele is commonly found in late Celtic art and is thought to have some Roman influence, although fine examples are found in the native art of Ireland and Scotland. It is thought to represent the three realms of Celtic lore: the past, the present and the future. One of the most popular of Ancient Celtic designs, it survived well into the Christian period, probably because it could also be considered to represent the Holy Trinity.
Diameter: 69mm For belt width: 40mm (1.5 inch)
Supplied in a velvet draw-string pouch.
The venerable alloy of pewter is made of 92% tin, with copper and antimony to harden it and enhance casting. All of our St Justin Pewter products are LEAD FREE.
