1830-1837 William IV Painted Ebonised Painted Wood Police Tip Staff /Truncheon & Wrist Strap. Sn 14867 - 14867

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 would also bear symbols of their authority. Modern Police Truncheons originated from these Tipstaffs. This is an excellent original large William IV Tipstaff / Truncheon. William IV (William Henry; 21 August 1765 – 20 June 1837) was King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and King of Hanover from 26 June 1830 until his death in 1837. The Ebonised wood is hand painted dark green with Crown below W IV R cypher (William IV Rex) in gilt, red and blue/green colours which are vivid. The staff with domed pommel, grooved grip and tapering cylindrical upper section measures 21” overall length. The grip section is holed and fitted with leather cord wrist strap. The wood has areas of light surface wear consistent with age but no damage or cracks. Price includes UK delivery. Sn 14867
