Title Plain clothes tipstaff
Nationality British
Period c 1790
Sold

Rare late Georgian police tipstaff, possibly a Bow Street Runner's, missing base cap element. Hollow shaft (for enclosing warrant), engraved GR beneath crown with the name of the officer, Timothy Bates. Very rare to find an item from this period with the name of the owner engraved.

A few age knocks, but excellent condition for age; all engraved details somewhat rubbed but still clearly visible.

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