Victorian Wooden Two Piece Pacifier / Cosh With Leather Wrist Strap. Sn 13475 - 13475

Victorian wooden two piece Pacifier / Cosh / Life Preserver with leather wrist strap. The Victorian era saw the populations in cities having to protect themselves from criminals and was a commonly carried life preserver. It was ironically an item much feared by men in the 18th & 19th century as it was used by the Royal Navy to coerce men into joining up. Press gangs would roam the streets of inns and taverns looking for the slightly worse for wear. Imagine enjoying a night out and waking up, hung over, finding yourself an involuntary volunteer at sea, on board one of the Navy's finest ships. This pacifier is made from light coloured wood and has the cosh end attached by a thick stitched leather strap. The cosh head is slightly weighted and the leather strap is pinned to it. The handle is turned with 6 thin grooves at the top and 9 thicker grooves at the grip end. It has a leather wrist strap which is nicely tapered and stitched. It measures 17" overall. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 13475
