Description

This is a very interesting item - It is decorative and collectable Irish Bogwood (ebonised) Tipstaff or 'Priest'. Apparently they were traditionally awarded to retiring Irish Police Officers so are commemorative pieces that would be displayed rather than used. I believe this to be an early 20th century example based on what I was told when I originally bought it a few years back.
