NOW SOLD TO A BUYER IN FRANCE . another sold table
what sold this table was the condition and how much the owner had spent on it recently , and the fact BCE tables are a bit more sought after .
being fitted by a good fitting mate of mine in Bournmouth .
We have a client who wishes to sell his BCE WESTBURY 12ft snooker table
the table was recently set up re-clothed in Strachan 6811 tournament cloth around 18 month to 2 years ago and only had Home use .
And also had new Northern professional rubber fitted and pockets openings re-cut .
and new nets and leathers
At this price with the recent work it is a Bargain .
My client is moving house down sizing and cannot take his table with him .
so it is priced to sell at just £750 .
the table has the modern adjustable centre slate adjusters fitted , BCE Westbury where one of the first to use these .
stops centre slate sagging and if it does happen then adjustable to get it out .
Just to prove it had the rubbers replaced here is a photo of me doing it .
A very nice table for little money , why buy a table you would have to spend around £1100 on to replace all the cloth /rubber and nets and leathers
BCE tables where used as world tournament tables from 1982 to 1992 .
and some professionals still swear by them today as one of the best tables around to play on .
so much that John Higgins recently let go of his Star table and bought a S/Hand BCE Westbury , sourced by GCL billiards for him .
save a few thousand from new , on this Westbury table for sale near Nottingham .
£750 is for table as it is , buyer arranges the move
Delivery and installation on ground floor , you want a quote ?
contact Geoff or Carol at GCL Billiards for a quote .
Well only on for less than 24 hours and already sold to a client I knew who was after something a bit special at a good price .
the table is stopping in Leicestershire too , so not far for the buyer and seller to arrange delivery .
We have a deep arched framed oak Orme and sons , what we would describe as an Arts and Crafts design dating from around 1920s to 1930s years .
The table is in oak and made by the famous Manchester firm of Orme & sons .
As you can see this leg design is unique to orme & sons and reminds me of a table I once worked on in the late Maurice gibbs Home near Esher London .
deep frame work and arch embellishments all in solid oak , the polish is in very good condition .
The cloth is not it is badly faded due to sunlight .
this table is very imposing design of the arts and crafts era .
End view of table .

Slate thickness bang on 2 inch , very heavy slates to handle .
Score board that is with the table .

there may be some rest extenders and cue extender with the table , I think this is why no long tackle .

my client is asking for £1000 for the table as it is and described .
I will pass on your details to the seller .

a medium wheel base medium high roof Vauxhall Movano will take three of these tables easy as an example .

The tables are based in Folkstone in Kent , my client is based abroad in Hong Kong at the moment , but he has a UK agent for entry into the club .
it would be ideal to sell as a job lot and for this the prices of each table could be reduced by £20 per table as a job lot collection in one go .
a saving of £120 over the Six tables .
£20 per table discount kicks in at 4 tables or more
I can offer £15 discount per table for up to 3 tables , if two tables then £10 discount per table .
I am trying to get a UK phone number for my clients agent for direct UK contact , cash on collection would be the preferred method of payment .
just to make you feel easy about the tables as my client is based abroad .

If you prefer the older design features of an old billiards table yet wish it to play like a modern table then this table is for you .
The much sought after Karnehm & Hillman full size 8 tulip design carved leg Buckingham model , if you are looking for a table look no further .
and at just £500 it is a come and buy me price .
Not sure on sunlight if this has affected the wood at the window end may have lightened it a bit ,
but the woodwork does look in very good order .
this table is all about these fantastic tulip designed carved type leg
at each leg there are carved scrolls either side on middle and corner legs , and a multi reed bead to the frame and lower cushion .
you may notice they use the older design of clip in buttons to hide both leg and cushion bolts
this is a much sought after design , that mimics the older looking tables yet plays like a modern table of the 1980’s onward’s .
A lighting shade and scoreboard balls and triangle and cue rack is also included in the price .
You may notice the lack of hooks for rests , My client says he had the table renovated , and if you do not fit hooks you cannot mark the frame with cross rest nibble .
when people put the rests back on the hook they hit the frame with the brass ends of the rest marking and eventually wearing out the polish
this one is untouched , and that is because they cannot put a cross rest head on the table .
I am amazed sometimes that people spend large amounts of money to have a table fully re polished only for them to mark the frame with cross rest nibble ,
I always try and educate people not to have hooks fitted if possible and to place rests in a free standing rack .
this just shows this seller is wise to what a cross rest can do to the ends of the table .
Now the bad part
The cloth looks very faded , so I would recommenced a full re-cloth for any buyer
Now I like to make sure every body understands what the sale includes and what is extra
a Re-cloth would be extra of course .
and the dismantle load , travelling unloading and assemble of the table to a ground floor room is also going to extra
we do not do upstairs or basement fitting of tables all tables have to be installed on Ground floor .
if you wish a stairs install then get in touch with Geoff who will go through the Extra – extra costs of a stair install as many men are required to lift slates up or down stairs
…unless you have a lift the slates fit in ?
to get quotes for both a re-cloth and the relocation of the table get in touch with Geoff or Carol by email
also all inquiries for this table to .
We have a private sale direct from the seller …no middle men fees .
A 9 ft x 4 ft 6 inch snooker table three section slate bed table …some term this as a 3/4 sized table being 3/4 the length and 3/4 the width of a full sized table .
not to be confused with an 8ft which others also term as 3/4 and yet is not .
as can be seen this table has been renovated and is still in very good condition
you may require a re-cloth you may go with what is all ready on the table as the bed cloth could be refitted , my advice is go to view before you buy to know what you want .
Table is located in Harpenden .
Cloth does look OK from the Photo’s also nets and leathers look very good
Wood work looks in A1 condition having had a refurbishment at some point in it’s life
button may be missing from bolt hole , so again ask if all there or go inspect before purchase from the owner .
the owner is asking £950 for the table , and this is not unreasonable for a private sale price , you would be paying much more from a dealer .
but do not forget this is as it is on site not dismantled and delivered and set up , you could ask GCL billiards for a price for this before you buy .
Just remember this type of work is not a courier pick up and delivery or a parcel being delivered by parcel force it is a bespoke skilled billiard fitter service and is priced appropriately.
A price will be supplied once we find if on ground floor at both ends and the distance from our base in Nottingham round miles trip .
As you can see it is not a parcel and has to be fully dismantled to deliver then erect , a postman cannot do this or a delivery courier driver .
it is no flat pack from Ikea .
it is a bespoke job from start to finish from a time served billiards fitters team of two .
A full on photo of the table playing surface .
you just know when you see a new transfer that this renovation has been done to a high standard
a billiards firm that has gone to the length of having reproduced the original art work for the transfer ,
which is then sealed under the polish shows the detail they have gone to in the refinishing and transformation of the table .
again make sure all the buttons that have fallen out of the cushions are still there and complete .
with the table you should get the balls triangle 2 cues and rests and the lighting and scoreboard .
*** Delivery and Install is not included in the £950 asking price you are buying it as it is sited for £950 .
PLEASE ASK FOR A QUOTE giving details of address and if on ground floor instillation and no steps or stairs .
the odd step does not count as we can ramp this for the piano trolley we wheel the slates in on from the van .
Price depends on distance and floor levels at both ends .
