Description

Victorian Rosewood Tipstaff With Hand painted Crown & Royal Cypher. Sn 13806 - 13806

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. It measures 7 ¾” overall length. The staff is made of Rosewood and has turned ring decoration, The top section has its contemporarily hand painted colourful decoration featuring the Queens Crown and stylised ‘VR’ Royal cypher and monogram which covers its circumference. The price for this excellent piece of Policing history includes UK delivery. Sn 13806
