Antique Billiard Snooker table circa 1850
A mahogany full size 12ft x 6ft antique billiard or snooker table by John Thurston of London, circa 1850, standing on eight elegant turned legs with applied bosses to the blocks and cushions, comprising an original slate bed and beautifully fitted brass pocket plates.
Early English billiard tables have side frames of minimal depth, this coupled with fine turned legs gives the table an appearance of lightness.
The table has been sympathetically refurbished by hand, we have replaced the perished cushion rubbers with new NR English rubber, and the cloth has been upgraded with new 'Strachan' 6811 English wool cloth.
Provenance Ickworth Park
