1830-1837 William IV Hand Painted Police Constabulary Tip Staff / Truncheon. Sn 18626 - 18626

The earliest record of the Tipstaff (Warrant Stick) was in the 14th century. The name derives from the early origins of Policing when Warranted Officers would apprehend a criminal with the help if necessary of a tipped staff. The staff would be made of wood or metal and were not only a means of self defence but would also bear symbols of their authority. Modern Police Truncheons originated from these Tipstaffs. This is an original large William IV Tipstaff / Truncheon (William IV was King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and King of Hanover from 26 June 1830 until his death in 1837). The staff measures 12 ¾” overall length. The ebonised wood has colourful painted panels ‘Crown & Royal cypher ‘WR IV’ (King William IV Rex)’ and unknown heraldic arms. The price includes UK delivery.
