Help Identify This 9' Table


Help Identify This 9' Table

I am in the process of setting up this table that has been in storage for the last 40+ years. Was not well stored and has its flaws but everything appears to be here. Not al the screws are in so nothing lined up yet. I'd like to identify it as I need a bracket that supports one of the site panels. If I cant find one I can probably get one made.

This is a 1966 Brunswick. This was made in Brunswick of Mexico and was ordered by my dad's company down there and set up in club house. Shortly after the town closed up and when we moved to the states we brought it with us.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm still looking, but at first glance it looks a lot like a Brunswick Anniversary pool table, but they didn't commonly have the score-keepers in the long rails like that.

    Can you upload a picture of what the aprons look like?

    Thanks, I'll try and get a better picture tonight. But on the second picture you can see the short panels next to the trash bin. I think you are mistaking score keepers with ash trays (or maybe a place to put the caulk).

    Here is what I got. I didn't put it on since my son wasn't here to help me but you get the idea in this 1st pic.

    On the back of the board is stamped "C0BRU66P" in the center and J53 on the side.

    I also saw "ANBRU66P" stamped on one of the corner pieces:

    I didn't come up with anything. The top-half is not a Brunswick Anniversary based on what I saw... none of them had the silver trim on the edges of the rails like yours. But those legs still do look a lot like the Anniversary legs. That stamp with "AN BRU 66" - the "AN" could represent "Anniversary".

    I've been all through my old Brunswick Billiards catalogs from the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s and can't find anything with those ashtrays in the long rails.

    I have heard that it was common for pool room owners to mix and match parts of damaged pool tables. There are a lot of Brunswick hybrids out there.

    Hopefully someone else will come along that recognizes it. If you happen to figure it out first, please do update us.

    Ok thank you for your help. The legs have the same matching numbers stamped on them so I would think they are matching. Unless it was ordered from Brunswick with mismatched parts it was assembled in the club house then crated and moved to PA. Maybe Brunswick MX did things differently

    Have you ever seen this waste basket? Came with two of theses and a tall chair with a crown at the top.

    Funny thing, I recognized it in your post, and remembered another post on here looking for these same ones. Quickly realized that it was your old post from a few years back. I love the style of the old pool room furniture, but don't know any more detail about them.

    But...

    • The guy you will want to call is Ken Hash of Classic Billiards in Maryland. They specialize in antique Brunswick stuff, do tons of restoration etc. He is always happy to help. Probably one of the top pool table restoration shops in the country and they have a huge stock of the antique stuff at any given time.
    • If that turns out to be a dead end, you can try Blatt Billiards out of NYC. Good chance they'll have one or more of those things. They used to buy out all of the pool tables and some fixtures from the failing pool rooms of days past when they would go out of business. They too are easily the most prominent pool table restoration companies in North America e.g. all of the celebrities shop there, etc.

    Contact info is found in the links. Worst case, you can always ask them to keep an eye out for you.

    Also, not sure if you know about the Brunswick Billiards Library? They've had all their stuff cataloged... lots of images of old dealer brochures, sales catalogs, mail order catalogs, and corporate sales materials from the 1800s to present-day. There are about 1000 items cataloged. If you have lots of time, you can probably find these and the matching furniture somewhere in there.

    I usually search the term "catalog" and browse for the year, etc.

    Awesome. Thanks for the help.

    I just had the bumper felt redone by a local billard repair shop. He said its a 2nd generation Brunswick Anniversary Edition. I should have it set up by this weekend, and I will post pics once its ready for play.

    Forgot to post my pic of completed table.
