Description

Victorian Police/ Constabulary Tipstaff With Hand Painted Decoration & Brass Plate With Royal Cypher. Sn 11548 - 11548

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. The body is made of heavy wood tapered and shaped for grip. The handle is holed for wrist strap. The top of the staff has a circular brass plate engraved with Crown ‘V’ (Victoria). The staff has beautiful hand painted decoration featuring a Crown and Royal Cypher. All of the staff’s Gold, Green and Red decoration is vivid. Price includes UK delivery. Sn 11548.
