Identify an Olhausen Pool Table Model Number

Identify an Olhausen Pool Table Model Number

I found this table on Craigslist. I am trying to determine what model Olhausen Table this is or if it is another brand sold by Olhausen or a fake Olhausen before I by it.

It is not the furniture design I want, but hard to pass on the price $450

Those are the only pictures listed.

Is there a model name plate somewhere?

Thank You,

    No, there would usually not be a plate with the model number.

    Based on the horrible pics, it looks like an Olhausen pool table but obviously impossible to tell from those alone. I can look in the Olhausen catalog and find that style of pockets, the rail style (the molded edges as pictured in the top right circle in the photo below, is classic Olhausen), that style of leg (based on what I can see of it), etc.

    Without better pics of the apron and legs, it's impossible to narrow it to a model. I wonder about Craigslist sellers sometimes. With pics this bad, do they even want to sell it? I guess it is priced well though if it's the real deal.

    I assume you'll go have a look at it. When you do, here is a clipping from the 2009 Olhausen catalog showing their style of construction under the table... might help you verify one way or another.

    You could also ask if the seller has the manual. That would have the model number, model name, etc. and help verify it's authenticity.

    Thank You so much for the info.

    I agree those are terrible pics. It looks like they have it buried in a garage.

    I have read on another blog "Beware of Bogus Olhausens" that there are fakes they call "FauxHausens"...

    Then on another blog they said this:

    "At one point an "Emperor" was distributed by Olhausen to its dealers here in the united states but not actually manufactured by Olhausen".

    I had never heard of any of that & that is the reason I am asking. $450 asking price seemed low.

    Again, Thanks for the help. I am on my way to look at it now with your info on my phone & flashlite in hand...lol

    Interesting comment about Olhausen distributing offshore-made table to it's distributors.

    Can you share the link if you still have it handy?

    I was thinking that it doesn't make a whole lot of sense, as Olhausen owns their own massive manufacturing plant, which I am certain isn't being utilized at 100% throughput. This means that every additional table they make and ship from there, it lowers their manufacturing cost per table as you distribute your fixed costs across more product.

    This looks like an Emperor... At one point distributed by Olhausen to its dealers here in the united states but not actually manufactured by Olhausen. I would keep looking if I were you. Where are you located?

    Good Luck!!!

    That is so interesting. It seems far fetched and un-substantiated, yet too detailed to be just made up nonsense. Almost sounds legit.

    I wish I had a good contact at Olhausen to verify with, but I don't.

    In any case, were it me, I would be comfortable trusting it is a legit Olhausen table. Guy probably just wants it out of his house as he obviously doesn't use it. Lots of that type of thing on Craigslist. Lots of house sellers (or old tenants) leave pool tables behind too. More common than you'd think.

    Could also be getting ready to move, and just needs it gone. Fast. This is also very common.

    Would love to hear what you end up doing with it.
