Georgian Truncheon - Royal Coat of Arms

Georgian Truncheon - Royal Coat of Arms

Price: SOLD
Ref: 10311

A decorative, George III period, hand painted wood truncheon of truly exceptional quality. The truncheon features the Royal Coat of Arms with Hanoverian escutcheon within the belted motto ` Honi Soit qui Mal y Pense` below a crown and centred between the traditional supporters of a lion and a unicorn.  The ribboned motto, `Dieu et Mon Droit` is above the royal cypher, GR.  The truncheon is further ornamented with gilded disc patterns and the handle is painted a striking red. Interestingly, the piece is impressed various times with the name, J. Stubbington who was presumably the original bearer. A wonderful example of this highly prized item of  Georgian social history, remaining in well used but excellent condition. Circa 1801-10.

H: 34cm (13.4")   W: 4cm (1.6")
