Billiard Snooker Pool Table, circa 1900 Solid Oak

About

The shaped, paneled legs of this handsome solid oak billiard table are adorned with pendant husks hanging from an acanthus leaf, the sturdy side frame is decorated with a beaded edge and a Vitruvian scroll border while the cushion friezes are embellished with a continuous band of crisply carved acanthus. The table retains it original five piece 2 inch slate bed. The makers plaque is subtly concealed behind one of the sliding panels adjoining the cushion frieze.  Stamped Thurston, circa 1900, see original illustration of table from the manufacturer's catalog. The table is complete with: A set of 22 of Aramith resin snooker balls. A set of resin Billiard balls. A table brush, oak triangle and chalk. A selection of 12 various ash cues and rests. Footnote: John Thurston (1777-1850) was an apprentice cabinetmaker at Gillows of Lancaster and London branch, in 1799 he established his own company and specialized in billiard tables and associated billiard room furniture. One of his most famous tables was that supplied to Longwood house on St. Helena, which was used by Napoleon during his exile after the Battle of Waterloo. The table has been sympathetically restored, the rubbers on the cushions (side rails) have been replaced with NR English Rubbers and and a new 100% wool cloth has been fitted to the bed and cushions. The cloth colour can be changed if required at an additional cost. The table dissembles into many components for shipping and loads easily into a 3500KG (1.5 Tonnes Van). We are professional specialist dealers and we are qualified to install this table, a quote can be supplied if required.
