all inquiries to Geoff at GCL billiards .
I will pass on your details to the seller .
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
but you may find that you can manage with just hiring a van and taking two strong persons with you
*** the table is to be paid for before it is allowed to be taken away .
the table May be sold deposit taken by seller ******
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
We have a Genuine 1895 circa Burroughs & Watts life pool Scoreboard for sale , a large 10 player board .
very ornate and attractive ,and at a reasonable price too when you compare what other leading billiard houses are selling them at .
all original ivory buttons , the lower cabinet WOULD have had a set of Ivory pyramid or life pool ball stored in there and the penny slots would and will still take Victorian Pennies .
you can pick odd ivory balls up now and again so i am sure you could make this period display even better
Highly collectable in this condition , and would look great if you all ready have a Burroughs & Watts table , but have a standard scoreboard .
all the life stars are there one is sticking at the moment but it is there .
a little repair here and there and a small split is all that this board has that you could pick fault with .
It is has not been re-polished and is all original apart from small repair to left hand lower slot , very hard to find them unrestored and original in this condition .
all I am going to do is wax it and polish it up .
Phone Geoff and leave a message if I am not around to answer the phone 077534 66064
£1500 will secure this board and will include couriered delivery ….the board is a Private sale .
Not too bothered if this one stays I like it that much .
SOLD SOLD SOLD !
Seller has now found a buyer and table is now sold sold sold !!!
Private sale of Karnehm and hillam 8ft snooker table
not your usual 4 leg rubbish that sags in the middle , this one has been made correct with 6 legs .
buyer to arrange dismantle and collection , GCL billiards could quote you for this .
the price of the table at £600 is as it stands NOT delivered and set up .
Any costs for collecting the table and having it installed is not included .
A table like this to be manufactured to same spec would be close to £2000 to £2500 new .
some may even charge you up to £3000 for a new one .
Cost of delivery depends on where you are in the country .
Delivering a 8ft Snooker table is not like sending a parcel by parcel force , you need a fully qualified Billiards fitting team .
the slate and cloth will be removed from the table and the whole frame taken apart , installing is a skilled job .
All inquiries to
Geoff and Carol
January 6th 2020 NOW REDUCED to £750 a saving of £250 from original price .
Remember this is the BCE Westbury model a dream to pocket balls on as best pocket plates design which many modern tables are now copying , and super rare in 10ft form
if you where to buy a new one of these it would be around £6500 to £7500 .
the 10 foot by 5 foot Table is located on a ground floor in Surrey , so only two fitters will be required to dismantle and load it .
Very rare to fine 8 legs on a 10ft , this table is priced to sell at just £1000….NOW £750 ( try buying a new one for that )
The table looks like it could do with a re-cloth in Strachan 6811 tournament but we can use any cloth you care to mention and is available through our suppliers ,
and GCL billiards will be pleased to quote for any removal and set up charges and re-clothing quote .
The table looks to only have had Home use and comes with a range of accessories .
The lighting shade is also included .
as can be seen it has 8 legs , most are 6 legged just like a full sized table
If you fancy a full sized table and just have not got the room for one ,
then maybe a 10ft by 5ft would fit the room , you would require a room 20ft by 15ft
rather than a 22ft by 16ft for a full size .
you can get more of an idea of cloth wear on this photo .
Geoff Large at GCL Billiards would be happy to quote you for the removal and installation of this 10ft table .
The table is based in surrey , we are based in Nottingham , it may well be a two day job to bring in and deliver the table .
and carry out the re-cloth .
You would be hard pushed to find a fitter with as much experience , 42 years in the trade now .
and no intentions of retiring at the moment .
We are just too busy moving and installing BARGAINS LIKE THESE direct to the customer v the selling client .
All inquiries to Geoff at …
we will pass on any interested parties to our selling client .
