Victorian Bingley Police/ West Riding Constabulary (Bradford West Yorkshire) Tipstaff Police Truncheon With Hand Painted Decoration & V.R. Queen’s Crown Royal Cypher. Sn 21110 - 21110
Bingley is a market town in the metropolitan borough of the City of Bradford, in West Yorkshire, England. In 1856 the West Riding Constabulary was formed and policed Bingley. In 1968 the West Riding Constabulary was renamed West Yorkshire Police. 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 also symbols of their authority. Modern Police Truncheons originated from these Tipstaffs. This is an excellent original Victorian era Tipstaff Truncheon. The body is made of ebonised wood tapered and shaped for grip. The staff measures 14 ½” length. It has hand painted decoration featuring a Crown and Royal Cypher ‘V.R’ above ‘Bingley 1’ (possibly No.1 district, officer or armoury number). All of the staff’s Gold, Green and Red decoration is vivid. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 21110

**LARGE**UNUSUAL 3 PANEL FORM**Victorian Queen’s Crown Hand Painted Decoration Wood Tip Staff / Police Truncheon ‘Officer Of Police 60’. Sn 21108 - 21108
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 attractive, large, unusual form, Victorian era West Riding Police truncheon. The wood truncheon measures 2 feet length and unusually has rounded ends at the top and bottom of the shaft. One end panel has colourful Queen’s crown with Laurel wreath above ‘VR’ (Victoria Regina) on a field of green edged with gold and black bands. The centre panel is a field of beige with no decoration and the other end panel has partially visible Queen’s crown with Laurel wreath above ‘Officer Of Police 60’ in gold. This panel also has most likely later small painted letters and numbers ’94-166a’ possibly a later stores or collection number. The panel is edged in gold and black. All of the staff’s decoration is vivid with areas of rubbing consistent with age and service use. We have not encountered this type of tip staff previously & can only imagine that this form of staff was meant to be held in the centre section so that when presented, the upper and lower sections bearing symbols of authority could be clearly read.
