Secure Payments By
A good collectable early ex-police truncheon. Ring turned hand grip. Made from Lignum Vitae, which is a very heavy wood, used by the police until recently, due to its density and strength but at the same time relative softness so would only bruise or stun rather than cut.
Bridport Antiques has clarified that the Victorian Police Truncheon (LA225500) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1840 / 1850
