Antique Billiard Balls

Antique Billiard Balls

Taken during Texas Antique Weekend in Round Top, Texas.

Here is a really cool shot of a bunch of antique billiard balls. These balls are well worn, and made from a range of different materials. You can see how some of them are cracked and old and probably not made from the material that today's pool balls are made from.

    Here's some old billiard balls I got with an old Brunswick mini pool table I got at a yard sale. The pool table itself is about 2.5 feet by 5 feet and has folding wooden legs. The people at Brunswick seemed to think it was made around 1918 or so.

    The accompanying billiard balls are about 1.5 inches in diameter and though they are kind of cracked and faded they still have a lot of action in them. There's no striped balls - they are all solid colors.

    I'm trying to find out if they are the right size for the mini pool table. I'm looking to restore it to a more playable condition. Right now the cushions seem dead or the balls are too small. I'm not really sure where the ball should hit the cushion... Are the balls supposed to strike the pool table cushion at the halfway mark?

    I'm a new user so I've got a lot to see on the site but these antique billiard balls caught my eye first.

    I have a red, white, and blue cue ball. The first time I saw this type of cue ball was in the early 1960s. It is red and blue on each side and white in the center and it measures 2 1/4 inches. The white stripe is 1 inch wide. I wonder if it would be considered antique?

    @rootboy-slim, I have a set of old pool balls just like the ones in your picture, except they are the full size 2 1/8". They have developed the same cracking around the center. Do you know what they are made of?
