Full size Burroughs & Watts carved table for sale steel cushions and choose your extra’s

We have due to HS2 Rail track  going right through the property  a table to sell for a client
The table is not your usual type that you see for sale , this one is Steel cushions and carved and you may wish to choose what you would like added to the table from the excellent top end accessories .
I am going to let the photos do the talking here and you’ll see what I mean , there will be sale  options of all the items as a job lot .
or the table only or the table scoreboard and cue rack only , and the excellent billiards raised bench seat only .

the Burroughs and Watts full size  table may require a new cloth , but this is a burroughs and watts steel cushioned table in oak .
the last one I worked on that looked  like this belonged to the late Maurice gibb of the Bee Gees , but that one had standard cushions on it .

Very ornate carved leg table in what is known as Arts and crafts period , circa around 1920’s /30’s
very deep sided table depth of side frame and arches , make this table look more substantial than a normal table .
The original long rests and cues are with the table .

as can be seen the original badge is till on the end of the cushion , Patent Burwatt steel vacuum cushions
by Burroughs & watts , this is a very old firm and one of the best firms and tables when built , do not confuse the modern Burroughs and watts firm with this firm they have no history with this old firm .
This is an original Burroughs and watts steel cushioned table .

the fantastic original scoreboard , there may have been a barometer or clock in the round section
this board is often referred to as a Life pool scoreboard or Pyramid scoreboard  .
the below ball display  storage box is not seen on all of these boards but with this board it comes complete with it .
Ivory or bone turn knobs and score sliders are original tot he board .

The life pool slide out panels  in the out position showing the three mother of pearl life markers
the object of the game is you have three lives , slide the panel over a life if you lose a life ,
and there is a slide out star if you wish to buy an extra life incorporated just under the upright panel where the clock is , this is slid out if you buy a life back to show a star .
some boards have penny life  slots , this board does not have that feature .

an original period rotating cue rack and cues complete the added  accessories .

This is a very rare to find Billiards viewing bench seat with storage
I would say this is an Extra to the table , because of size it needs a very large van to move it
roughly just under 12 foot long  40 inch high and 35 inch depth . to edge of plinth

the plinth comes off  and separates

Bonus to the buyer is the seat has just had an expensive reupholster .

make sure if you buy this seat you have the access to get it through doors without turns being tight remember it is nearly 12 foot long .

and would have to be separately transported if you bought the complete package as too large and heavy to load on with a table , and would not fit on my van .
or maybe use a large removals van to collect the entire complete package would be the sensible way but that could prove costly to do .
I do have another alternative to have the seat only moved in an open backed wagon if route is acceptable to the driver of the wagon  , but at buyer’s risk of weather .

Right I am awaiting a price indication from our selling clients for each item or as part package entire package .
We have already had a discussion about possible values , but if you would like to make an offer in the meantime while we work out the prices then please do so .
Fixed Prices will be going up on this site by the end of the week .

A Unique opportunity to acquire  a very substantial piece of Historic billiards collection at a reasonable price .
Direct from the seller with no middlemen fees .

All inquiries to Carol or Geoff Large by email to


we will pass on any genuine offers for this table to our client and if you wish to have a quote for removal and delivery and set up we can quote you for this .

Arts and Crafts type snooker table , Burroughs and watts oak steel block full size snooker table for sale , location in south London

We have a client who wishes to sell their full size snooker table
the table is in natural light solid oak finish and is in the style of Arts and crafts confirmed date of manufacture is  1956
the table has now been professionally dismantled and stored in our clients Garage by GCL billiards , my opinion of the table is that the woodwork is in very good order , just requires waxing , the cloth replacing and also the rubber in the cushions has to be replaced , the nets and leathers require replacing and maybe ball rails in place of bag nets ? the shade has now been scrapped .
A very good Burroughs and watts Steel vacuum cushioned table , with 2 inch thick Welsh slate in very good order. would make a very nice table for someone requiring one of the better made tables that is up for sale .
Every nut and bolt is present with the table as are all knee panels , nothing is missing .
the Vintage maker of this is Burroughs and watts , a well respected manufacturer in the Billiards and snooker industry right up to when they ceased trading in the 1960s  , and not to be confused with a modern firm still using that name .
burroughs and watts oak square leg London
the woodwork looks in extremely good condition and i would say it has only seen private use from new which would be circa 1930’s
A good waxing is all that is required to keep the vintage patina of this period table .
But I would say from a professional Billiards fitters eye that the cushions may require a re-rubber , and the cloth is faded so it will require a new cloth .
You may want to just wax the leathers and keep the period billiards nets , or replace with new nets and leathers and ball rails
Offer’s please  for this very well made steel cushioned Burroughs and watts table .
the table is located in South London very close to Brixton. We dismantled the table on a Sunday and getting to the address was simple as we set off Early , but Traffic had built up by 1 pm and it took us a while to work our way back up to the M1 for our return journey back to Nottingham .

Burroughs and watts ornate cuboard scoreboard
As a separate sale there is a very special life pool scoreboard which the owner has taken a like to and may keep it , I would value the scoreboard at £1000 if taken with the table and maybe more if sold separate  ,
at least twice as much as the table which just shows the value of second hand tables and rare pieces such as this scoreboard .
The  scoreboard comes complete with lower rare to find complete cabinet , there are many of these scoreboard which are called Life Pool boards for sale from just £450 in rough condition upwards to over £1500 , this just requires a few new ivory buttons on the slide out panels each side of the board which are missing . apart from that is looks complete and original
this board , is an 8 player board . you can get them in 10 and 12 player boards with penny slots on , but this one has it’s original lower cabinet which is rare to find .
The owner has discounted the sale of the table to sell quick , but on advice he may or may not sell this scoreboard , it is up to any buyer to negotiate this if he wishes to buy .
For details of this superb made table and board , please contact Geoff at GCL billiards for further information , contact details are as follows .
