Latest on this table ( july 21st 2017 ) TABLE NOW DISMANTLED AND COULD BE COLLECTED FROM GARAGE STORAGE for low cost pick up just hire a transit van and two men could easly load it , then get a profesional billiard fitter to call round and fit it .
We have a client in Leicestershire who has a 10ft Billiards table for sale at a reasonable £500 asking price
The Thurston made table comes with a nice period scoreboard and set of balls and cues , and is circa pre 1890 and maybe as old as 1870’s
as you can see the table has some nice figured mahogany flaming to cushions
although in my opinion the table may require a re-cover and maybe re-rubber depending on bounce left in cushions , but this would be down to buyers preference .
I would recommend an inspection to put your mind at rest and to decide what work if any you would require if any ? but the cloth looks faded .
the polish is in very good order and I would describe it has the faded wood look and not the Dark red or Brown that many of these tables where stained with .
all the cushions buttons are missing , the cushions having a nice flamed mahogany face to them as seen in the photo’s , a very nice Victorian period table .
Side shot of the table showing it is a 6 legged type , the cushions buttons are missing but a wood turner could make some of these to hide the cushion bolts
the table being pre 1890 has the brass finger top plate pocket plates .
all Billiard tables where top plates until the manufacturers started to make them inserted from the end of cushion type or hidden fixing type around 1895 .
This table has a 5 piece slate bed 1 and 1/2 inch thick , I have visited to level only in the past , and maybe fitted those nets and leathers for the previous owner of this table a well known professional County Cricket player .
The new owners would like to use the room for other purpose and I have valued the table at £500 for a quick sale , I am sure you will agree £500 for such a nice period 10ft Billiard table is well worth it .
matching period scoreboard also included in the sale , all enquiries to
I will pass on any serious inquiries to the seller and you are then free to choose who you wish to remove the table and transport it to it’s new home once sold .
21st July 2017 , visited our selling client and dismantled the table so it is ready for a DIY pick up if you wished to pick it up yourself .
just back up to garage and load onto a Hire van .
In my opinion the table will require a re-cover .
if you would like a quote for this removal and transport and any other work you may require like a re-cover , then please contact Geoff at the same email address
