Inquiry reference , Mr Cooper Riley full size . 14/2/15
We have a client ( Mr cooper ) who wishes to sell their full size snooker table
the Table is a Riley turned leg , circa around 1930/50 they made these design of tables for a long time period right up to the 1960s
My Client is looking for £350 for the table , Buyer responsible to dismantle and take away , If you wish GCL billiards will be pleased to quote to dismantle load and deliver plus unload and assemble plus any other work you may require
Just email Geoff at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07753466064 .
as you can see the table comes with a full set of rests balls and cover , plus a Brush and metal lighting shade
This leg design was very popular for E.J riley the Manufacturer and was produced from 1910 to 1960’s
The table will have a 5 section 2 inch thick WELSH slate bed which is far superior slate than most modern tables made from Italian / Brazilian or Chinese slate , Welsh slate is the best in the world .
You would be buying a quality slate bed table which is far more better to play snooker on than a more modern table with soft slate , welsh slate is more denser and slightly more heavier than Italian slate .
as for Chinese slate this is even more softer , it is well known that the slate quarries in ~Wales and Ireland have the best slate for Billiard tables in the world .
for comparison you can say the same for curling stones , the best are made from Ailsa Craig green Granite , a product of Scotland , so Welsh slate is best for Billiard tables .
Our client is looking to have the table sold within the next 4 weeks if possible , being located in a garage makes for a easy dismantle and load to take away so it may be possible for someone who knows how to take one apart to do this part of the job as a DIY task
But please be aware those slates weigh 1/5th of a ton each , and the van used to take away should have a payload weight of at least 1600 kg .
As you can see GCL billiards do have the man power and the tools to take a table apart and load it safely , our van also carries the table and all tools with up to three men all within the legal weight limits .
