This belt is made of five sections of dyed leather that are joined with over-stitched thongs. The longest section would lie around the back of the wearer. A silver-white paint line creates the open, single-strand, interlace design. The rounded buckle is cut from aluminium. It is engraved with a pattern copied from one of the stones in Meigle Museum. A green-blue colour is used to emphasise it.

This and another belt were donated to the museum by the Bain family, along with other small objects. All had been kept in a decorated, lidded box.
