Victorian Era Police, Tipstaff With Wooden Handle, Hollow Brass Warrant / Message Tube & Screw Off Brass Crown Tip. Sn 13495. - 13495
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 11 ½” overall length. The body is made of heavy wood, tapered and grooved for grip. It has a heavy pointed brass butt fitting and hollow brass tube shaft for carrying messages, instructions, warrants or other orders. The top of the shaft has a screw off tip in the form of a brass Royal Crown with rich red felt padding. The price for this excellent piece of Policing history includes UK delivery. Sn 13495

Victorian Wooden Two Piece Pacifier / Cosh With Leather Wrist Strap. Pol 399 - Pol 399
Victorian wooden two piece Pacifier / Cosh / Life Preserver. The Victorian era saw the populations in cities having to protect themselves from criminals and was a commonly carried life preserver.

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 dark coloured wood and has the cosh end attached by a thick stitched leather strap. The bulbous cosh head is not weighted and the leather strap is pinned to it with 4 steel pins and copper washers. The handle is turned with grooves at the grip end. It measures 21 3/4" overall. The price includes UK delivery. Pol 399

The Victorian era saw the populations in cities having to protect themselves from criminals and was a commonly carried life preserver.
