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.

Wanted to let you know the items arrived today. Great job on the packing. Too often I buy very expensive and irreplaceable items from the UK and they get sent barely packed to protect them from the various postal services - appreciate you going the extra mile to insure it arrived in the shape it left. Thanks again, look forward to doing business with you in the future. Items were very nice, exactly as offered.
