Full size Burroughs and Watts Snooker table for sale in Cheshire…….OFFERS

We have a client who is keen to have removed a Burroughs and Watts full size snooker table that is situated in a basement.  The table has a life pool scoreboard included, but this is in a very sad state of disrepair.

Please study the following Photo’s of this fine old table and if you are interested I will put you in touch with the owners.

The table is in Mahogany and has medium to thin tulip legs which date from around 1880 to 1900.  The cushions date from after 1896 as they are not the older top plate design, so this table may have had an upgrade of cushion in its early life or was made to have the older thinner type Victorian tulip legs.

The life pool scoreboard has all the slide out life panels missing and the markers have also fallen off the board, but it has a ball box at the base which looks ok !

This Burroughs and Watts table has STANDARD cushions, they are not steel block.  The name plate refers to a re-rubber in a later life when the Eureka cushion rubber was used.

GCL Billiards would be happy to quote for dismantle and transportation and set up of this table, but the owners are also offering to quote for dismantle and delivery.

We would recommend that a proper professional time served billiards fitter puts the table back up, or you  you may want to go down a lower cost option of picking up the table yourself and just getting a billiards fitter in to re-erect.

GCL Billiards do not buy tables.  We are not interested in buying any full sized snooker table.  We are 100% maintenance only. BUT WE DO offer a free service to advertise them on our web site.

When you email please describe the table and have your contact details for telephone number and email address and a postcode where the table is located.  Also state if any stairs or steps are involved in taking the table out.

Send an email to GCL Billiards attaching three to five photos of the table showing the whole table by using a digital camera.  Most iphone pics are not good enough so we cannot use them.  Photos to include the main table showing it in full, including legs, a close up of the leg, a close up of the pocket openings (centre and corner with a ball in the opening) plus any photos of scoreboards and accessories.  Please state what is in with the sale, an iron for example.

Just sending me a messsage with “we have 7 full size tables for sale at reasonabale price, please get in touch” is not the way to go about it.  It is you who is trying to sell, I am providing a FREE service, so please do not make my job hard by giving me the task of doing all the running around for you.  Just follow the procedure above, send photos, with contact details and asking price, plus list any stairs etc.  It is so simple that way, all I have to do is paste the photos and do a little description of the tables from the photos and list it.  This takes very little time for me to do.

We do offer this free advertising service in the hope that whoever buys will use GCL Billiards skilled fitting services to move and assemble the table.

Our sales section has worked for people and tables have been sold on.  Not everyone uses GCL Billiards to move the table, but some do and that is why we set up this free advertsing offer.  Please use us, we want you to use the for sale section, but please do it using the information set out above.

*****any comments enquiries left in the for sale section under our advertisements will have to be removed *****

I’m afraid we are very busy and just do not have the time to chase them up, we only answer the email enquiries for items to be put  in the for sale section.

As you can see the table is located in a garage or workshop.  The table is ideal for two markets, someone who requires a low cost table of good build quality for their garage or outbuilding, or someone who wishes to have the table fully restored or part restored for use in the home.  The woodwork has marks from use and the cloth may be ok for the garage, but if putting the table inside then maybe a re-cover in nice new Strachan 6811 Tournament cloth would transform the playing surface.

The genuine Orme & Sons Ivory name plate , you can tell it is real ivory by the grain of the elephant tusk in the background of the plate , sometimes known as cross hatch pattern.  Although it says “established in 1845” the table is circa 1901 to 1910 as referenced to by “appointment to King Edward VII”.  This is a well made table, made by one of the top billiard houses of the 19th and 20th century.
