$57,058.79Asking Price


Wimbledon-Furniture Wimbledon-Furniture is delighted to offer for sale this stunning and exceptionally rare original circa 1800 Charles X Hardwood and Marquetry inlaid Billiard D'epoque billiards table with solid bronze fixtures and fittings and a suite of extras Please note the delivery fee listed is just a guide, it covers within the M25 only, for an accurate quote please send me your postcode This is a very rare and highly collectable billiards table. Retailed in Bond street London however it was hand made in France. This table was produced by the same company that made one of Napoleon Bonaparte’s Billiards tables, the name plates which are in mother of peal and inlaid into the top of the table are heavily faded and difficult to read The table really is a tour de force of marquetry work, it is some of the most ornate and exquisite work I have ever seen, there are Cherubs, Challises, all manner of floral detailing, this table is like an exquisite work of art from all sides. The metal work is all beautifully cast, its solid bronze on the lion hairy paw feet which are surmounted with crowns, the ladies masks on all corners and the middle along with the floral rosettes In terms of the condition it is very good, the inlay is all present correct and secured in place, the baize cover was replaced a few years ago, there is one small perforation line, otherwise it’s in fine order. The cover can be fully and professionally replaced in any colour of the new owners choosing for the cost price. All the bronze has been removed, cleaned, polished and waxed, we have done it in such a way so as to keep the original patina, it has take 220 odd years for the bronze to age in this way, it would be a crime to polish it to a mirror finish The table comes with an array of extras, you have a suite of original snooker balls in a lovely wood case, a suite of normal sized pool balls with their own triangle, a suite of larger pool balls again in their own wood case and another triangle, various cues and a mid-Victorian snooker score board For the transportation the table comes in a few pieces, the cushions are all linked as one removable piece which is easily manageable for two people, the slate top is exceptionally thick and is a four strong person job to move, you then have the base which can be transported as it is or have the six legs removed, I would recommend removing the six legs as they each weigh a good 30 kgs Dimensions Height:- 84cm Width:- 246.5cm Depth:- 135cm Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask Any questions please feel free to ask before you bid This item is available for collection from our Wimbledon warehouses SW19-3BE, we can have it delivered nationwide to include Scotland Wales and Ireland.
