Gillow's billiard snooker pool table georgian mahogany english antique 1810

About

A 12ft x 6ft outstanding original Gillows antique billiard table, this table is the epitome of understated elegance, standing on six finely tuned octagonal legs with beautifully carved Tudor Rose Patrae to the frame and leg blocks. We believe this is one of the earliest known example on the open market today and most definitely the only six-legged Gillows Billiard table available worldwide. The mahogany used in the construction is a fabulous cut, we have dated the table to 1810 with the help of our own records and the assistance of The Judges Lodges Gillows Museum in Lancaster. Billiard Room Ltd We have included an image showing the bare frame of the table without the slates and cloth, this sub-structure is equally beautifully constructed from solid oak and completely original to the table. Also illustrated is an original page from a sketchbook belonging to Gillows, this clearly illustrates the option of an octagonal leg on a billiard table ( See Far right leg) The table has been sympathetically restored by hand, we have renewed the cushion rubbers with NR Rubbers and cloth with Strachan 100% wool cloth. Gillows made very few billiard tables and only ever as important commissions for landed gentry and the aristocracy. A similar table almost as good as this one is illustrated in Susan E Stuart's Gillows encyclopedia
