Hello looking to identify and possible find a value of our Brunswick table.

The pool table came with two sets of rails - one for pockets and one with no pockets.

All the sections have serial number 49711.

The patent tag reads:

Patent 305463
Sep. 23rd 1884

    Not sure if you've see this post. His pool table has the same patent plate.

    Unique antique table - anyone ever seen similar?

    Yours is probably a year or two older than his. Yours is probably 1885-1886.

    Serial numbers are not of any help in identifying it. But, since they all match, it helps show provenance to the fact that it's "all original" e.g. it hasn't been pieced together from multiple old pool tables (as many have been over the years) and it hasn't had any of it's parts replaced.

    Brunswick has thousands of documents, catalogs, photos, etc. online in their archives. Go there and start searching - it may be your best bet. I've briefly looked and couldn't nail it down, may have missed it.

    It looks like a Brunswick Balke Collender Warwick model, but the legs are different, and the Warwick model is from early 1900s. Feels like yours is a bit older than that.
