Brief Description
Metal cast belt buckle, rectangular with a decoratively looped lattice border. On the front in the centre is a separate but securely attached metal figure that is slightly raised from the main buckle. It is a cricketer holding up a bat in front of stumps. The figure is attached to the body of the buckle via hidden metal pins at its head and feet that pierce the buckle and are bent to fasten on reverse. On the reverse is a loop and hook to accommodate a belt.
