    Early 19th Century Police Tipstaff With Oak Turned Handle, Ornate Brass Shaft & Crown Tip With Original Gilt Finish. Sn 15824 - 15824

    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 Tipstaff. Made in the early 19th Century. It measures 9 ½” overall length. The ring turned Oak handle has a rounded end which has a small stable chip to the edge only visible on close inspection. The brass shaft has stylised foliate decoration. The shaft is topped with brass Royal Crown. The shaft and crown have original gilt finish. The price for this excellent piece of Policing history includes UK delivery. Sn 15824
