This truncheon measures 13 and 1/2 inches overall in length and about 1 and 5/8 inches in diameter. The top shows a section filled with lead for added weight. The piece has excellent form with nice vase and ring turnings similar to those found on a fine Windsor chair. It retains its original black paint with a large gilt "GR III" monogram in the center with a decorative boarder above and below. Below the monogram is a rack number "10" in gold. The back is deeply stamped "CHESHIRE". The "GR III" is for Georgius Rex III who reigned as the King of England between 1760 and 1820. CONDITION: Very good overall retaining almost all of its original black and gold paints. Some scattered marks from use and scattered areas of wormholes. Some deterioration and minor losses to ball turning at the very bottom. Truncheons such as this were used for the impressment of sailors leading up to and during the War of 1812.
