all accessories that are in the room are to go with the table balls cues rests and shade and scoreboard .
The table is based in Daventry and at the moment I only have photo’s with all toys and stuff stored on it but I have attached a library photo of what the table looks like but it has green cloth on it .
It will require a re-cover so please take this into account when buying the table .
as you can or cannot see in this instance the table is covered in all sorts of things , our client is busy parceling up all this for a house move and clearance , looks like the snooker room is the sorting room .
I have been assured it will be accessible and ready to dismantle with a clear pathway to the van that it is being loaded into .
This is not the table but an identical one

steels are slotted so they will fit any older 5 side bolted cushion and 6 bolted end cushioned table .
the capping frieze could do with a re-polish to bring up to a good standard and then you could stain to suit your own table , has a commemorative plaque on one end so has some History
also has the Burroughs and watts badge on the other end stating steel vacuum cushions complete with pocket plates this will upgrade a normal table to steel cushion match play type .

the type of cushion plate name badge on the end looks like this .

Sorry this one went quick , but please keep looking on my web site for other tables that may come up for sale direct from the seller with no middle men fees then just get a quote from Geoff at GCL billiards to relocate it .
This table is due for relocation on 19th of October and is being re-covered in new Grey cloth for our buying client all on the same day of pick up and deliver and re-cover , the seller was extremely pleased that we where able to sell his table so quick .
this we feel is due to the way we sell tables , by not buying and selling ourselves we do not have to add a percentage to the sale as we are not keeping a stock on our books , but by placing an advert direct from the seller at realistic prices we feel attracts buyers , and this system works .
KEEP LOOKING on our web site for more great table sales direct from the seller no middle man fees to pay .
just our normal relocation charges for dismantle and deliver and erect .
as we would if you where moving home and where taking your table with you and required a specialist to take care of this type of work .
Removal firms and man and van do not do this type of work with a sectional slate bed table , it is a Qualified Billiard fitters job to do this to a satisfactory standard .
and we have our own van to do this work .
Here we have a good opportunity for some one looking for three section slate bed table with bolted cushions
Ideal Family Christmas games table just in time for Christmas at a very good price .
These tables new can cost up to around £1995 without the table tennis top option .
Our client is eager to move the table on and wish to have it sold and out by October .
so here is a Bargain for someone for just £500 . Which I think has to be the fairest price as any removal costs going on top and relocation costs has to be added .
as you can see the polish is in very good order and I have been informed hardly any use at all on the cloth .
the nets and leathers still look immaculate .
This table was probably imported by Titan leisure and GCA re branded it as their own by simply sticking a label on one cushion .
GCA I have been informed by the seller no longer exists .
Now there is one thing that could be improved on with the table and I will now show you from a photo.
the underside of the table shows that there is a three sections late bed as the line is a slate joint , but there are no slate supports to wind up to the slate in this table ,
a long beam of wood is required and two adjustable brackets at each end will make this table a much better table to play on .
or two cross ember beams and 4 brackets , the choice is yours , but I would advise this to be done as my next photos will show you .
adjustable muntin slate support adjusts upwards and supports the slate from sagging .
a preventative option that you should be having fitted to all snooker tables above 6ft .
Especially 4 legged tables , such as this one .
obviously the price of this table at £500 is a private sale and does not include any alteration or pick up and delivery .
a price could be supplied for you from GCL billiards for this work , but we are pretty booked out at the moment .but I could give a good few firms names for this work if we are not available .
the cushions have bolted type hex head fixings so not a low cost option , with just wood screw slotted head fixed on cushions so well made .
the table comes complete with a table tennis hard top cover , the table underneath is a 8ft snooker table the table tennis tops are approx 9ft long .
a very nice looking table and at just £500 it is a very fair price
the table is based in Weobley in Herefordshire .
any inquiries please contact GCL billiards through our email and we will pass on details to both buyer and seller .
Here we have an original Riley Rise and fall diner . 7ft size .
circa 1930s to 1950s .
Made in solid oak or bleached mahogany which looks to have been stripped back for a more lighter natural look .
The cloth is perfectly playable but does show signs of wear on nose of cushions and could do with a good iron to lay the wool nap back down .
*** PLEASE NOTE
I have been informed that this table is located upstairs , I did have a buyer lined up but I not know this , you must when making an offer ask the seller to get down stairs or base your bid on yourself employing people to get it downstairs for you and deduct that from a bid that you would have made if this table was on the ground floor . although heavy this table does not weigh as much as a single section of 5 off a full size snooker table , the dining table slate is only half an inch thick while a full size table is two inch thick and comes in 5 sections , this is a one piece slate bed table but only half an inch thick and 7ft by 3ft 6 inch ,you may with three people slide it downstairs using an old strip of carpet to protect the stairs and the table edge .
you may need a piano trolley like this to wheel it to a van on its side edge
The light oak and square fluted legs would suit a more modern home as well as say a cottage with plenty of oak such as doors or skirting .
being a dining table it doubles both for dining and playing .
It is important for any 4 legged diner to have anti bow beams fitted , here you can see these beams supporting the slate so as to discourage sagging in the middle .
the all important rise and fall lifting brackets are all in location , some may find the lifting to lower and the lifting to lock up hard to master , but it is a simple procedure
and these brackets require just a few drops of oil or grease to keep free and work with ease .
wipe any excess oil or grease away when doing this , badly maintained lifter brackets will result in sticking bracket slides .or one side free while the other sticks , most annoying .
another view of the very nice solid oak dining tops in 5 sections .
some of the accessorizes are included , but you will have to ask the seller which ones
I always recommend that any seller includes the full kit to playing the game , after all you would not buy a car without a steering wheel so why buy a snooker table without scoreboard
or balls .
so please find out what is included before committing to buy from this private seller .
As you can see the cloth is a bit faded and shows ball wear on the face of the cushions but I have been assured there are no damage in the cloth and it is perfectly playable .
please also inquire from the seller that the rubber cushions rebound with good value .
GCL billiards do not own any of the tables for sale in the for sale section , they are advertised as a direct sale from the seller , so you must ask the seller these questions .
If you require any information please email me after the 22nd of September 2017 as I am out of the country for this week .
I will put any one interested in the fine well made piece of furniture , directly in touch with the seller Emmi .
These 7ft Riley diner tables are sought after and can fetch anywhere between £650 to £1300 DEPENDING on rubber /cloth nets and leathers and polish condition .
In pristine fully renovated condition expect to pay around £2500 from a dealer for an oak 7ft version .
This table seems to be in good moderate condition so I would say a figure between the two would be a fair price depending on what came with it of course and if those rubbers are in good order .
I base my valuations on Private sales not what a dealer would ask , so they are very fair come and buy me prices based on what these tables exchange hands for on the private market .
A dealer may ask for much more but they normally are sat for many years before someone buys them .
You may decide on a re-cover so here area few prices so you know what it would cost to bring right up to A1 playing condition .
A re-cover in good quality Strachan napped cloth £325
a re-rubber using good quality 5/8th rubber £275
new nets and leathers fitted as same time as a re-cover around £100 per set again good quality type .
This table is worth at least £650 , but based on factors given may be worth around £950 to £1150 that is my guideline for this table based on the photos .
Of course you will also have any removal and collection and delivery costs on top of this .
The table is based in Shalbourne Village in the SN8 are , not far from Andover . or the M4 .
all inquiries to GCL billiards by email please . please paste this advert to any email when inquiring , it makes life so much easier .
I have a client who wishes to sell a full size solid oak Riley Hybrid Viceroy / Imperial Billiard table . for offers around £600 for a quick sale .
I say Viceroy / Imperial as this table I noted has the viceroy deep arches but the Imperial slide in cushion panels .
the Viceroys I normally work on have a thicker slanted slide in cushion panel .
so that is why I say a hybrid Viceroy / Imperial model table .
also the deep arches are not as deep as some viceroys but a lot deeper than the shallow arch of the Riley Imperial model .
so maybe an imperial with deeper arches, a Riley customer option that they may have asked for ?
as you can see this table is solid 1/4 sawn English oak
the sun has faded the lower parts to the legs .
a nice selection of period rests are to be seen here too.
You may notice that the table will require a full re-cover and maybe new rubber , and nets and leathers .
but the wood is in very good order . it depends how you wish to go about any restoration work , from minimum as is to full or part recondition .
but the table is as seen for offers around £600 buyer to arrange dismantle and removal , the table is on ground floor .
these tables look very good in Barn conversions .
If anyone would like an estimate for GCL billiards to travel and pick this table up and do any work required then deliver and set back up , then please contact Geoff through our email
email@example.com to discuss this .
all inquiries for this table to Geoff Large at GCL billiards .
an original advert for the Riley Viceroy circa 1920s
Even Walter Lindrum played on a viceroy as the table of his choice for his Home in Australia .
Another viceroy I put together for another client , I put this photo in to show just how sturdy these tables are .
another viceroy i put together this one also in Wales for another client , note the thick slate pads under each leg on this one ,
this client had these put in as he was a tall player and suffered from a bad back playing on low tables .
and yet another Viceroy I worked on in the Cotswold’s .
an imperial frame , note the shallow arches of the imperial model .
same leg as a viceroy , just not got the deep arches of the viceroy .
they even made 8ft and 9ft Riley viceorys .
