Full size Burroughs & Watts carved table for sale steel cushions and choose your extra’s

We have due to HS2 Rail track  going right through the property  a table to sell for a client
The table is not your usual type that you see for sale , this one is Steel cushions and carved and you may wish to choose what you would like added to the table from the excellent top end accessories .
I am going to let the photos do the talking here and you’ll see what I mean , there will be sale  options of all the items as a job lot .
or the table only or the table scoreboard and cue rack only , and the excellent billiards raised bench seat only .

the Burroughs and Watts full size  table may require a new cloth , but this is a burroughs and watts steel cushioned table in oak .
the last one I worked on that looked  like this belonged to the late Maurice gibb of the Bee Gees , but that one had standard cushions on it .

Very ornate carved leg table in what is known as Arts and crafts period , circa around 1920’s /30’s
very deep sided table depth of side frame and arches , make this table look more substantial than a normal table .
The original long rests and cues are with the table .


as can be seen the original badge is till on the end of the cushion , Patent Burwatt steel vacuum cushions
by Burroughs & watts , this is a very old firm and one of the best firms and tables when built , do not confuse the modern Burroughs and watts firm with this firm they have no history with this old firm .
This is an original Burroughs and watts steel cushioned table .

the fantastic original scoreboard , there may have been a barometer or clock in the round section
this board is often referred to as a Life pool scoreboard or Pyramid scoreboard  .
the below ball display  storage box is not seen on all of these boards but with this board it comes complete with it .
Ivory or bone turn knobs and score sliders are original tot he board .

The life pool slide out panels  in the out position showing the three mother of pearl life markers
the object of the game is you have three lives , slide the panel over a life if you lose a life ,
and there is a slide out star if you wish to buy an extra life incorporated just under the upright panel where the clock is , this is slid out if you buy a life back to show a star .
some boards have penny life  slots , this board does not have that feature .

an original period rotating cue rack and cues complete the added  accessories .

This is a very rare to find Billiards viewing bench seat with storage
I would say this is an Extra to the table , because of size it needs a very large van to move it
roughly just under 12 foot long  40 inch high and 35 inch depth . to edge of plinth

the plinth comes off  and separates

Bonus to the buyer is the seat has just had an expensive reupholster .

make sure if you buy this seat you have the access to get it through doors without turns being tight remember it is nearly 12 foot long .

and would have to be separately transported if you bought the complete package as too large and heavy to load on with a table , and would not fit on my van .
or maybe use a large removals van to collect the entire complete package would be the sensible way but that could prove costly to do .
I do have another alternative to have the seat only moved in an open backed wagon if route is acceptable to the driver of the wagon  , but at buyer’s risk of weather .

Right I am awaiting a price indication from our selling clients for each item or as part package entire package .
We have already had a discussion about possible values , but if you would like to make an offer in the meantime while we work out the prices then please do so .
Fixed Prices will be going up on this site by the end of the week .

A Unique opportunity to acquire  a very substantial piece of Historic billiards collection at a reasonable price .
Direct from the seller with no middlemen fees .

we will pass on any genuine offers for this table to our client and if you wish to have a quote for removal and delivery and set up we can quote you for this .

Full size Karnehm and Hillman Buckingham tulip leg table for sale . just £250 buyer arranges collection

We have a client who wishes to sell a full size Karnehm and Hillman snooker table
condition is fair faded cloth and wood on one end .
all accessories in photo included including shade

as you can see the table is in good all round condition apart from some sun fading to wood at this end and cloth discoloration , but most would have it re-clothed anyway .
and it is priced to sell at just £250 .
~the table also has a BCE type scoreboard .,
the nets and leathers look in very good order .

photo from other end , polish is more darker this end

this is the faded wood end , not bad really and you will always get this in a private home the sun shines through  a window or patio door as in this case and fades the wood .
in a snooker hall there is no windows and no fading but the table in a hall gets more hammer and use
The table ideally has to go by April

ERIC CLAPTON’S old 3/4 size snooker table for sale (9ft x 4ft 6 inch)

I have for sale a much cherished 3/4 sized snooker table that Eric Clapton gave his ex wife Pattie Boyd when she was setting up a new home.  The table once stood at Eric’s house and studio named Hurtwood Edge in surrey and some serious rock gods have played on this table – Jeff Beck, Ronnie Wood, The Stones, The Beatles etc.  If the table could tell a story of the wild parties that are well documented in Erics and Pattie’s autobiographies!

Hurtwood Edge, Eric’s country home in surrey where he also had a studio and where the table originaly came from before Pattie sold it to me.
Pattie was also married to George Harrison and the song Layla and wonderfull tonight was penned by Eric who wooed her away from George. but they remained good friends .

The table is a 9ft by 4ft 6 inch, a true 3/4 sized table.  These tables hold their value as they are sought after due to them not being full size ,there are houses with enough room to house a 3/4 sized table where a full size table would be too large so they are much sought after and are thin on the ground unlike full size tables.

The table is a Palmer & sons circa 1900 so just over 100 years old and is mahogany with 6 turned legs.  I did not take photo of it when it was up, but will take some of the legs and end cushion name plate.  I will rerubber the table, recover it, and put new nets and leathers on.  If the new owner would like a full repolish then that is down to them, but I could get this done for an additional cost.  I would rather keep it as it is with its original polish and a few marks here and there just as it stood in Hurtwood Edge.

I have a signed provenance from Pattie Boyd that the table was from Hurtwood edge and owned by Eric.  Eric recently sold all of his Guitars in the famous Crossroads auction and many of these where priced at way over what most people could afford. Blackie the worn out stratocaster Eric played so often getting a final bid of  $959,500 in 2004 a world record for a guitar at that time.  By comparison, in 2004 Britney Spear’s used chewing gum sold for $14,000

I am a big Clapton fan.  I have experienced the 60s and the 70s and lived through that period as a young teenager and Eric inspired me to pick up a Fender stratocaster and play in a Rock & Blue’s band myself for around 10 years , I play hank Marvin instumental’s at home now, but now and again play Bad Love and some of the Who’s classic rock theme’s.

I shall regret selling the table as I always thought I would have a games combined music room , but I have decided to sell now and invest the money into Pool table stock for the rental side of the business, as we have had many enquiries for pool table hire .

 A  fantastic piece of provenance of a Rock God who is still alive and kicking and still playing the blues and long may he live , if you have a games or music room large enough and like rock and blues , here is a centre piece for that room and a good talking point of famous ownership. I am not asking for the same amount as a John Lennon rolls royce or Elvis’s Cadilac , or Britney Spear’s used gum .

If it sells then it sells if not I still get to keep it . The table could be pallatised and shipped to the USA if fans that side of the pond would like it , but at their cost of shipping and insurance.

8ft Karnehm and Hillman snooker table for sale … NOW SOLD

NOW SOLD AND COLLECTED .
as from March 6th 2018

 

We have a client who wishes to sell their 8ft three section slate bed with bolted into slate cushion and 6 legs Snooker table
offers around £500 is what he is looking for .
Aylesbury area is the location of the table .
the table looks like it could do with a re-cover and maybe new set of pockets nets and leathers to bring up to date .
I can vouch that K&H is a very good make , one alteration i would recommend is that it is fitted with a set of adjustable slate supports as it is lacking these .

cloth faded and pockets discolored but is it is playable as it is .
and worth the money being asked .

a photo of underside , three section slate but could do with  some adjustable slate supports to make much better for keeping level .

this is the improvement of what I mean about adjustable slate supports or muntins .
these wind up to and support the slate from sagging and recommended to have fitted if you have the table moved and set up again .

bolted cushions into slate make for a much better firmer cushion and good bounce .
this table is made just alike a full size table and build quality is very good .
