George IV Police/Constabulary Tipstaff With Hand Painted Decoration. Sn 13300 - 13300

A George IV hand decorated wooden Tipstaff/Constables Truncheon with G.R. Royal Cypher. George IV reigned from 29th January 1820 to 26th June 1830. 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 the tips of the staffs would bear symbols of their authority. Modern Police Truncheons originated from these Tipstaffs. This is an excellent original Georgian era Tipstaff in a form similar to those used in the reign of King George III. The body is made of yew wood with cylindrical body, tapered and shaped smooth handle which is varnished and decorated with fine black painted rings. The staff has hand painted decoration featuring a Kings Crown with scrolls and foliage in gold. The staff measures 11 3/4" overall length and the wood is undamaged. All of the staff’s gold, & black decoration is vivid. Price for this piece of Policing history includes UK delivery. Sn 13300
