We have a very nice table that is a private sale and is close to Underhill near Barnet North London Area for collection .
the table in it’s recent past had a full renovation in cloth rubber polish nets and leathers ,
it sits on it’s own legs and has a raise and fall system that raises for playing , and lowers for dining off .
As you can see above it is solid mahogany and has 4 table leaf’s , that fit on top for dining table use .
the table comes with a good range of accessories in pool and snooker balls, triangle, Brush , rest cues
rules and cue rack .
these tables normally sell in the region of £1500 to £2000 form a dealer if your lucky , some may even charge more .
this £1125 price guide is spot on for this table , it would have cost more than that to renovate it .
Buyer to arrange removal from property .
A piano trolley is the normally way to move a table slate top to a vehicle .
under the table there are 4 lifting brackets with leveling knurl that you turn to level the table off .
there should also be anti bow bar beams , visible to the left of the photo x 2
when dismantling the table it should be in the lower position , go under the table and unscrew the 4 brackets off , but mark where they go back on
as the brackets wear into the other surface they should be put back on in the same order .
some brackets have a number on the side of facing edge , but not all the time .
A matching scoreboard , this is original to the table , is also included .
Rules and cue rack with assortment of cues is also included .
You can see that the firm who renovated the table kept the original transfer of E J Riley masked off when stripping and polished it back in
A proper professional Billiards firm did this .
most would have just stripped it all off .
Some firms would have removed all the small knocks and indentations of age , this is wrong to make a old table look new ,
this renovation still lets you see it is an old original Riley diner .
but in pristine polish condition .
cloth is pretty good condition from the photo’s , and does not require a re-cloth .
as is the nets and leathers .
Very nice turned and fluted legs , with buttons to the cushions finishes off this table .
In my opinion , Riley Diners are the best Dining tables to buy , they will be the centre piece of conversation
they are well made and used top quality materials , and the raise and fall system is copied by other firms even today
I would say this table is from a time period of around 1910 to 1930 , later models from the 1930’s onwards did not have buttons but slide in panels
like this later model below .
