A 74th or 1st Royal Lanark Militia Mace

A very rare 74th or 1st Royal Lanark Militia band mace .

The mace is approx 56 inches tall and has a plain base cap finial presumably in silver plate on what appears to be a Sickamore turned pole. The top of the mace has an elaborate design in silver plate of an arabic 74 and thistle device topped by a Queen Victoria Crown. Around the top of the mace is a title strap with the words 1st Royal Lanark Militia.

Overall in good condition although there is evidence of some distortion in the top finial, possibly through being droped at some point in its life. This has now been repaired but would benefit from some expert attention to bring the mace back to its former original glory. This work could be undertaken by TMG should you so desire.
