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.

Just to let you know that the bayonet arrived safely this morning by Royal Mail. I am delighted with it and it will be put to very good use at some forthcoming events.
