Pattern
The Borre-style belt buckle is modelled after one from Birka grave no. 949. A very similar buckle was found in Lithuania called the Uzpelkiai buckle. http://www.sarks.fi/fa/PDF/FA13_93.pdf

It is decorated in the Borre style and features elaborate scrollwork with a figure sitting on the top panel.

The strap end is a style found throughout the Viking World, including Birka and Gokstad.

Similar designs can be seen in the Portable Antiquities Scheme.
