This gold buckle with lobed edges has at its centre an escutcheon flanked by two birds with their wings outstretched as if in flight. The composition resembles a coat of arms and is seamlessly woven into the background of rich foliage, all cast in delicate openwork. The shape of the buckle is a variation of the ogive which was popular among the Malays and Peranakan Chinese. Nyonyas often wore buckles with metal belts. The owner wore this buckle with a silver belt, made up of links and three rows of florets.
