Victorian Era Police, Tipstaff With Wooden Handle, Brass Shaft & Screw Off Brass Crown Tip. Sn 13496. - 13496

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
