Square leg (RILEY?) full size snooker table for sale in Hearne Bay Essex

Another client who is wishing to sell his good condition full size Snooker Table which is located in Hearne Bay Essex.  The table’s wood work looks in good condition, the cloth that will be upto the buyer if he decides it requires a recover or even a re-rubber, GCL BILLIARDS can quote for this.  The table was fitted by Steve Davis’ brother who is a billiard fitter.

Table is open to offers, buyer collects.  There is a Dowsing Iron and a pure bristle brush, but this will only be sold with the table if a suitable price is met, otherwise these items will be sold separately on Ebay if the table is sold first.  My advice is try and get them with the table.  A new iron on its own is over £200 and they do not make those pure bristle brushes like the one with the iron anymore.

Balls triangle and rests are included with the sale.  Lighting is a coffin shade, but we recommend the new pro lighting twin tube units over any coffin shade if you buy this table, which GCL Billiards stock for dispatch.

GCL BILLIARDS has not inspected the table, we have only seen the photos.  If a buyer is found GCL BILLIARDS can quote for removal, transport and installation in new premises ready for play.  Contact Geoff at clarge@btinternet.com or 07753466064 quoting sqaure leg hearne bay Essex table, for contact details of seller.  Only genuine buyers please.

GCL BILLIARDS HAVE FOR SALE IN LEICESTER, DIRECT FROM THE SELLER, A GEORGE WRIGHT FULL SIZE SNOOKER TABLE CIRCA 1890

We have a client who wishes to sell a nice full sized snooker table made by one of the top Billiard makers of the victorian era.

A George Wright readed leg, with external protruding cushion bolts with wood button covers, thus meaning the full thickness of the cushion body wood is used to tighten the cushion up, making for a far superior bounce from the cushions than a normal recessed cushion bolt.  There are 8 cushion bolt buttons missing, but these could be made .  Also two of the nine inner frame muntins have been misplaced, but again two could be made up.

The table used to be in a garden building that is now being fully demolished and rebuilt, so the owner has had the table moved to a far superior room which is nice and dry.  This has been done so that any buyer can inspect the table first hand and try a few balls around it.
I would recommend a full new cushion wood blocks fitted and re-rubber and re-cover for any new buyer.  As you can see from the photo it is a really nice table with its billiard pockets still intact, very rare to see a table with just bag nets on.  It has never had the ball rails fitted to it in its life and it still sports its original rubber from new (and they still bounce).  This table is over 120 years old !

The 2 inch slates are very true and are of course WELSH manufactured so the best money can buy.

As for polish this is down to the buyer.  Some may like to see it just waxed up and keep its true vintage look whereas others may require a full re-polish.
The seller is looking for offers around £2000.  A billiards firm would be looking for around £5000 to £6000 + vat  fully revamped and fitted.  A London billiards house could ask for as much as £10,000.

Look at the original ivory name plate.  George Wright displayed many of his designs at grand exhibitions around the world including London, Paris and Sydney.  With 16 prize medals awarded on this ivory plaque it informs me it is an early model and around 1890 is the date I would put on it.  With Billiard brass recessed top pocket plates and thick slate .you may also note the royal appointment to HRH Prince of Wales.  This is Prince Edward so Victoria is still on the throne.

For more detailed history information about the firm George Wright read this link (from Peter clare @ E.A.clare and Peter Hainsworth) also note the dating of the 18 medal plaque as 1894 so I am about bang on with dating this table to circa 1890.

Anyone wishing to view the table which is based in Leicester then please email me at c.large@btinternet.com , I will then put you in touch with the seller.  All we ask is please consider GCL BILLIARDS for any renovation or removal and set up work etc.

We do not charge a commission for this service of putting a buyer in touch with a seller so please use us, we are fully qualified time served billiards fitters.

7ft bison

8ft Riley billiard diner for sale includeing Delivery in time for Christmas.

I have put these photo’s up for anyone looking for a 8ft Billiard / Snooker dining table.
The table is being sold as fully renovated by Brian and Peter at cheshire billiards , Brian has been a big help in setting my buisness up .
An 8ft dining table is rare to find for sale these days , most made where the 6ft and 7ft versions , this is a genuine Riley which has been fully stripped and repolished re rubber and re cover , the score board has been manufactured by Brian and Peters firm Cheshire Billiards , this scoreboard is an exact reproduction of a genuine Riley score board , and has a dual purpose , a concealed scoreboard , and a photo display when not in use .
the table is circa 1930s , Cheshire billiards have carefully left the original transfer of Riley still on the end cushion panel .

*Note* the pull out lifting handles on this 8ft , this is to make lifting up to playing height much easier , the smaller 6ft and 7ft versions did not have this feature , and many people used to lift the table up to playing height by the pocket plates , which damaged the table. you should always lift with these handles , of if the smaller table put youre hands under the end cushion , never lift by the pocket plate.
priced at £4995 and in oak , this table would make an ideal Christmas treat for the Family and a fantastic Dining table for the Home .
anyone interested please contact Brian or Peter at cheshire billiards 01724 852359
