We have a client based just south of Maidstone who wishes to sell a 7ft snooker table including vast amount of accessories
the table is UPTAIRS , so any buyer will have to arrange to manhandle this to ground floor and out of the building
Selling clients are elderly and cannot help with that .
one pocket or rail or net may need some slight attention so I am informed .
I would recommend that the cushions and pockets and rails are unscrewed off the slate to lighten the lifting .
Frame could then be dismantled or if stairs and doorways wide enough carried out as it is .
slate is best carried down stairs on its own you may need 4 men for this .
and a small / medium transit van , with blankets , small removals firm should be able to manage this with a piano trolley .
Well made Hubble and Freeman manufactured .
£350 ono . buyer to arrange to take away .

Lighter mahogany , a nice change from all those dark woods that you cannot see the woodgrain .

and being a lighter wood would fit into most homes colour schemes .
Note the reeded legs .

Here we have a Unique sized Billiard table I have worked on a number of times re-clothing over the past years near Lincoln & Sleaford and Newark ( within that triangle ) .
it is one of those tables that you never forget working on , as it used to be a full size table .
And it was cut down in size to fit a room for cue size all the way around , by a Billards firm or Billiards fitter ( unknown ) but maybe by Thurston ?
How do I know it was a cut down table ?
Well there are tell tale signs in the under frame work , leg spacing , and the cushions that give this away .
The table size is over 10ft long and under 11ft playing area .
It’s outside measurments are 11ft 4 inch by 6ft 3 inch , obviously the playing area is less than that by about 6 inch all the way a round,
to nose of cushions if you take the depth of capping and overhang of cushion block and rubber into consideration .
I would say approx playing area of 10ft 4 inch by 5ft 3 inch .
and a slate size of approx 10ft 8 inch by 5ft 7 inch
so I could not advertise it as a true 10ft and not as an 11ft …it is what is known in the trade as a B*****D Size .
I have only worked on one other B******D size table and that was in the Vicarage of Dartmouth in Devon where they had an over 8ft yet under 9ft table
So they are out there .
this table is for sale due to a house sale …due to be completed in January
the unusual thing about it , it has steel cushions from a Burroughs and watts table , yet for some reason ( maybe through working on it in the past )
I am not sure if the whole table is Burroughs and watts or if the frame is Orme & Sons , I will forward the leg design onto a Billiards historian who has referance to these tables for his opinion .
but for some reason Orme is sticking in my mind , maybe because orme stamp their name in every piece of wood , and I may have seen it on the under frame work when I worked on it in the past .
it is a table that I have told many about , when people ask me if I have worked on odd sized tables , this and the Dartmouth Vicarage one .
with steel Burroughs and watts cushions fitted to it , the slates having been reduced also means the steel cushions and polished capping friezes have also been reduced in size .
My client at this stage is looking for sensible offers , and would like a quick sale .
So here is your opertunity , if you always wanted a full size yet not got a room large enough for one , yet this may fit ?
it is a unique table not many will have one the same size if any at all .
I think you would be looking at a room 20ft 6 inch by 15ft 5 inch to be comfortable , yet an inch or two less , would not effect it . so 20ft x 15ft room may be allright .
a price for removal and fitting to a ground floor premises could be given once we have your post code …by GCL billiards
this would be extra to the table price which you have to offer to our PRIVATE Seller .
this sale will not incur any middle men fees for the actual price of the table .
Viewing is recommended .
All info please contact Carol or Geoff Large at GCL billiards email .
*** ADDED NOTE ***
I have now found out through a billiard Historian ( Peter Ainsworth )
that the frame of this table is from an Orme Bath Club model table circa 1909 .
many thanks Peter for this information .
it must have been a special order to have one cut down to fit a room , and then ask for the better Burroughs and watts steel cushions to also be cut down and fit .
A one off conversion , and I suspect that Thurston maybe the firm that did this for the original owner .
Illustration kindley supplied by Peter Ainsworth .

We have a client looking for a nice full size snooker table in oak
looking for one in the £500 price range so he can spend money on a re-cloth and pockets adjustment or re-rubber
table has to play like a modern table and not one that is hard to pot balls on or bounce out from middle pocket plates
A standard Riley aristocrat or Karnehm and hillman will suffice , POLISH must be in excellent order no rough tables .
not too fussed if squared or turned legs the tables playing experience is more important , of course build quality is a must have and condition of wood work .
some thing like the following is what I am looking for , may consider a Mahogany table .
Aristocrat by Riley
oak square leg a contemporary look ?
Riley square leg , but not an old one like this as pockets openings are a problem
if you have anything like this and in need of removal i have a client waiting for one .
Geoff or Carol Large .
NOW SOLD to a client buyer in Leicester
PRIVATE SALE DIRECT FROM SELLER
Here we have a reproduction of a vintage design of flip over dining table
by sir William Bentley billiards and it has a blue cloth .
in very good condition by the look of the photo’s my client has sent me .
as you can see a simple one person job of flipping over the table top to dine off
this leaves the snooker / billiard table suspended underneath the table and no 4 or 5 sectional dining top leaf’s to take on or off unlike the riley dining tables .
and where do you store them , this solves the problem a simple flip over design .
Lovely polished Mahogany finish
the actual dining table top will be a little larger than the 7x3ft 6 inch playing surface of the billiard table .
closer to 8ft by 4ft I should think .
plenty for 8 to 10 places depending on chair size . you may even get 12 placings if you are lucky and get two people at each end .
the legs are a nice turned design , on this reproduction replicating the George Edwards or George Wright flip over diners of original design of the late 1890’s
I do not think this table will be up for sale long ,
Christmas is coming , what better way of entertaining the family after the Xmas Lunch than to clear the table , flip it over for a few frames of snooker or pool .

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 ?

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 .
Welsh slates are original to the table .
Slate thickness bang on 2 inch , very heavy slates to handle .
Score board that is with the table .
there are some x rests but no long tackle rests
a scoreboard and brush .
a set of balls
and a couple of cues and cue rack
there may be some rest extenders and cue extender with the table , I think this is why no long tackle .
the table is a private sale and is stored in Leicester Forest west very close to junction 21 of M1 .
my client is asking for £1000 for the table as it is and described .
I will pass on your details to the seller .
