Title George III truncheon for Little Cressingham
Nationality British
Period c 1801-16
Sold

This is a parish truncheon from a small village in Norfolk. It bears the coat of arms current from 1801-16, the latter part of George III's reign, as well the name 'L.Cressingham' to distinguish it from Greater Cressingham nearby. These parish truncheons are quite hard to come by, not quite as rare as the Tithing or Hundred type.

There is some loss (about 15-20% overall, with only about 15% on the detailed areas) to the paintwork, especially round the right hand side of the crown, but overall, considering the age of the piece, it is really in quite good shape. It is 21 and a half inches long.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

My Arisaka arrived at 9.00am. Very prompt delivery and excellent packaging! The blade is superb.. and just what I was after, its in very fine condition and just as you described.. I've referenced it in my copy of Raymond La Bar's book "Bayonets of Japan".

Many thanks, Chris, once again its been a pleasure doing business!
