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 .
all inquiries to

this is a private sale and is not owned by GCL billiards .
You could get a price from GCL billiards for a bespoke professional collection and delivery and set up

Score board still available .
We have a client who wishes to sell their much treasured family billiard table
A period of a round 1910 to 1936 is the time period of the table manufacture
Orme & sons well known for their preference to make tables in solid Oak …chances are if you see an old oak table it will be a Orme & sons .
This table is being sold on its own or with a very collectable Orme & sons Arts & crafts scoreboard
Lighting Shade is included in the price as is the gas stove heated iron balls and long tackle plus rests .
Square shaped fluted leg with decorative button and flat bead edged knee panels
Now these boards are a bit special , and this one more so as it is from the Arts & Crafts period and design .
The table can be sold separately for £500 and the score board for £600 , or both for £1000 .
and as a gesture the owner will throw in a nice set of framed period rules .
the score board is a 10 player life pool and billiards board and has 6 ivory buttons missing but overall is in very good order , I am sure you could locate 6 buttons from a collector or billiards firm .
or buy an old bone ball and have some made on lathe .
the arts and crafts carved design of the closed door fronts to this board make it unique and collectable
Be a shame to separate it from the table , but these boards are in demand .
if the table is sold first then the board can go after .
but the buyer of the table gets first refusal of the score board .
Ivory name plate on the table has King George V as monarch , reign from 1910 to 1936 .
a good way to date a table if you have no original sales receipt is the end name plate on the cushions
most carry the time period of the Reigning monarch .
Sadly we live in a time where the board is worth more than the table , but we have priced these items at a very reasonable costing ,
this reflects the sale s prices currently fetching around the UK for S/H tables and equipment .
A good time to buy is right now .
a nice set of framed period Billiards rules , could do with a new antique effect glass in the front .
these are included if you buy both the table and the score board .
but if not then this set of rules is £50 .
Table is located near Bamford , Manchester .
Cost of removal and collection is down to buyer , the table is on GROUND FLOOR , so no stairs to get down with the heavy slates .
*** if you require a quote for professional billiard fitter team to collect load , deliver unload and set up on Ground floor , please contact Geoff at GCL billiards for a quote
We have a charitable cause to try and find a buyer for the 7×4 pool table
this belongs to part of the NHS organisation .
any funds raised will be used to improve their service for other use or equipment needed .
I have valued it at around £200 to £250 . but they are open to offers and best offer will secure .

PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE BOUGHT THE TABLE AS I NEED TO TAKE IT OFF LISTING ONCE SOLD
**** it looks like it needs 4 new adjustable feet to level the table and the plates , these can be sourced via EBAY or from any UK pool table manufacturer
or from another table that is being broken for spares .
but they may have them on site or they may be inside the table .
I would hope that a valuation of around £200 to £250 is about correct for this type of slate bed table and is realistic and achievable .
We advertise many second hand snooker tables on our site
these are Private sales and I have the sellers contact details
these sales are direct sales from the private sale and not from GCL billiards
a lot of people phone up and ask about a table they think is in stock , this is not the case
we do not buy tables to sell we are a maintenance company and we also do logistical work relocating tables .
This table for instance was advertised for sale yet the owner also advertised it for sale on Ebay .
this table sold on Ebay so we would not have known unless the seller had contacted us and explained it was sold , as this owner did in Lincoln and we now know it is now not for sale .
we get a lot of people who also sell their tables by other means , while it is advertised on our web site still for sale and they do not let us know .
So to avoid confusion any advert more than 6 months old is going to be removed off site when I get around to it .
If any seller wishes to re advertise then please get in touch , if you see your table has been deleted from the sale page , or you are closing in on 6 months and you wish to renew .
by doing this we can keep a fresh for sale stock on our Tables for sale page
PLEASE NOTE it is FREE to list a table on our site , we only take a very small commission if we find a buyer for you . just £25 for admin use .
NO SALE NO FEE . Buyers there is no commission fee , but we are now starting to charging £25 to broker a deal with the seller . thus we will make £50 per deal from buyer and seller at £25 each .
this we think is Fair for our sales and buyers page .
We do have to make a profit in our business and the buyer is free to choose any billiards firm to move the table , so without these small charges of £25 each we would be operating a service which is unsustainable .
We have to make our small profit it all adds up into a wage and profit for the firm going on .
Remember as a BUYER you get a professional Billiard fitters expert opinion of each table sold , certain makes and models to look for , problems or expense going forward if you buy a certain table
and you only pay the £25 if you buy a table from our advert and our referral to the seller .
I especially have very useful information when it comes to 8ft tables as there are a lot of 8ft tables you should avoid buying .
and yes a lot of full size tables too you should avoid .
Also please note any BUYERS , the cost of relocating a table or any work it may require is not included in the for sale price , you are just buying the table direct with no middle men fees
( only the admin £25 fee ).
once bought you can then ask GCL billiards for a quote for any upgrade of cloth nets leathers , Rubbers , and the cost of dismantle load and unload and erect on site .
We always take care loading and unloading , but please inform if any stairs are involved as we have stopped doing the stairs work now we are in our later years of fitting .
we just do Ground floor to Ground floor delivery of table work .
this is due to over 40 years of lifting and back and joint trouble , if we carried on lifting slates up and down stairs we would not last much longer in the fitting of tables .
or even Maintenance of them , I intend to carry on working into my 70’s so the less strain on those week points will mean i can last a few more years yet maybe even 10 more years at fitting and re-clothing tables .
Lets just say it is like footballers playing for a top premiership team and slowing down in his old age , and then finds himself playing in Division 1 or 2 of the football league for a few more years.
Lets say like that footballer who likes to play , I like my work at fitting tables and re-clothing them and need to drop down a division or two to carry on .
A few less days and no stairs so to speak .
The less of these stairs involved will make sure I reach my goal of working well into my 70’s
