SOLD SOLD (15/04) Victorian Irish Police Bog Oak Wooden Truncheon/ Staff With Hand Carved Shamrocks & Harp. POL 407. - POL 407
Bog Oak, much like Brown Oak, is not a specific species, but is rather a term that designates oak that has been buried in a peat bog, sometimes for several hundreds of years. The anaerobic conditions of the bog protect the wood from decay, while the acidic water contains tannins, which stain the wood a dark brown to almost black. This is an excellent Victorian Irish Police Hand Carved Bog Oak Wooden Truncheon/ Staff. This heavy truncheon measures 13” overall. For its whole length and around its circumference the staff is deeply hand carved with, Leaves, Shamrocks and Harp designs. The grip section which is holed for wrist cord has a hand carved diamond shaped pattern to assist grip. The tip of the staff is decorated with a hand carved shamrock. The price for this Victorian Irish Bog Oak Police truncheon / staff includes UK delivery. POL 407.

**SOLD**21/4**Victorian British City Of London Police Uniform Leather Waist Belt, Buckle & 2 Piece Brass Clasp. Sn 18829 - 18829
Traditionally the responsibility for policing in the City had been divided between day and night City Watch, primarily under the two sheriffs. Their responsibilities were shared with the aldermen's officers – the ward beadles – who are now purely ceremonial. It was these officers' responsibility for ensuring that the Night Watch was maintained. Policing during the day eventually came under the City Patrol, which evolved into the City Day Police, which was modelled on the Metropolitan Police. The London City Police was officially formed in 1832, before becoming the City of London Police with the passing of the City of London Police Act 1839, which gave statutory approval to the force as an independent police body and headed off attempts made to merge it with the Metropolitan Police. Some notable events the force has been involved with include the Jack the Ripper murders, the 1910 Houndsditch murders, and the response to the IRA's bombing campaign during the years of the Troubles. This is an original Victorian period City Of London Police uniform leather waist belt and 2 piece brass clasp. The waist belt is dark brown leather with 2 adjustment loops. The inside of the belt has impressed number ‘122’ & ‘40’. The belt has no damage or tears. It is 36" long when laid out flat with a folded extension piece which has an additional length of 16” held in place by a brass bar adjustment buckle. When locked together the 2 piece brass clasp forms the badge of the City of London Police. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 18829

Victorian Era British WD Parker Field & Sons London Police, Tipstaff With Screw Off Brass Crown Tip & Hollow Brass & Wood Message Tube. Sn 18738. - 18738
The gunsmith William Parker (1722-1841) is recorded as having premises at various premises in London between 1793 & 1841 including 233 High Holborn, Chamber Street and Glass House yard. His Sons continued the business after his death in 1841 and the company later became the prestigious Parker Field, makers of quality firearms and edged weapons, many of which were supplied to the British Military & Police (see page 190 of Browns book ‘British Gunmakers Volume 1’). 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 and / 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 7 ¼” overall length. The shaft is hollow brass with turned wood centre section. The brass shaft is hollow to contain messages or warrants. The shaft is signed by the maker Parker Field & Sons London and has War Dept ‘WD & Broad Arrow’ mark. The top of the shaft has a screw off tip in the form of a brass Royal Crown. The crown has traces of original gilt finish. The price for this excellent piece of Policing history includes UK delivery. Sn 18738
