The Sergeant‐at‐Arms is the custodian of the Legislative Assembly mace which symbolises the authority of the Speaker of the House. The Western Australian mace was designed by the State Works Department in 1887 and was manufactured in South Australia by S. Schlank’s Beaver Factory in Adelaide at a cost of £70. Made of silver with gold leaf, it was first used in the Legislative Council in 1888, and was transferred along with the Sergeant‐at‐Arms to the Legislative Assembly upon its establishment in 1890. It is the oldest Parliamentary mace in Australia.
