Title Mahogany truncheon
Nationality British
Period c 1820
Sold

This truncheon - almost certainly mahogany, though it might possibly be fruitwood - may well have been made for private use as there are no marks or paintwork. The shape of the head suggests an origin in the Midlands, the Manchester tipstaves being constructed in this baluster form.

Its condition is excellent, with a little bit of bruising on the baluster section.

testimonials

Thanks very much for the bayonet. I am very happy, I think your photos of your items are great because nothing is hidden and you can clearly see them. (Unlike some other dealers.) Everything was as you describe, I will be keeping a eye on your site for any further bayonets for my collection.

Just a short note to let you know that I have collected the Police fur cap this morning from the Post Office. I am really happy with it, and for sure I will give a thumbs-up to your service. This was the first item I ever bought from you, and I hope it will not be the last.
