Belt consisting of gilt-brass plaques attatched to a leather underbelt. There are twenty-one plaques shaped like letter I's with concave sides and two similar plaques like capital I's dissected vertically. These fit together around twenty-two oval plaques. The I-shaped plaques are engraved with two pairs of stylised acanthus leaves on a matted ground and the oval plaques with hexafoils also on a matted ground. The free edges of these plates have an applied border of roping. The main boss consists of a truncated pyramid engraved to match the plaques and on the reverse are two hooks at right angles. The plaques are attached to the belt by means of eyelets on the reverse through which are passed three thongs. The end of the belt has a small oval brass buckle.
