Black and white photograph of a design for a silver buckle [by May Morris], in pencil, which is mounted, with some manuscript pencil text on the drawing. Only the left hand side of the buckle is finished, the right side lightly sketched. Each side has three vine leaves. The photograph is mounted on a page. The object was held and photographed at the Bodleian Library, Oxford University. The photographs were taken during research by Elizabeth Masterman, for her book on May Morris. The text on the page states that the Bodleian mounted the drawing, where it was held, because it was the 'best in the collection for fineness of execution'.
