The single loop buckle is D shaped and has a zoomorphic depiction of a horned animal at the tip of the loop.

There is a circular perforation to hold the pin which is now missing. To the reverse of the zoomorphic depiction the buckle frame is concave. The plate is broadly rectangular and has a split end terminal with a circular perforation to hold a rivet which is now missing. The front face appears to be decorated. The buckle is 35.9mm in length, 15.95mm wide, 5.6mm thick and weighs 7.79 grams.
