    Victorian Pudsey (West Yorkshire) Police Constabulary Ebonised Wood Tipstaff Truncheon With Hand Painted Decoration & V.R. Royal Cypher. POL 400 - POL 400

    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 Victorian era Tipstaff Trucheon. The body is made of ebonised wood with cylinder shaped body and contoured handle with grooved grip section. The staff measures 14 ½” length. It has painted decoration featuring a Crown and Royal Cypher ‘V.R’ above ‘1’ (weapon, Officer or District / Division number) & ‘Pudsey’(Pudsey is a market town in West Yorkshire, England. Once independent, the town was famous in the 18th and 19th centuries for wool manufacture. It was incorporated into the City of Leeds metropolitan borough in 1974). All of the staff’s Gold and Red decoration is vivid. Price includes UK delivery. POL 400
