Identify Vintage Brunswick Snooker Table

Identify Vintage Brunswick Snooker Table

I am helping a friend trying to find a home for her vintage Brunswick snooker table.

It's a four-piece slate pool table with six legs. It is currently disassembled and in great condition.

I assume it's 6' X 12' but I am not sure of the exact model.

  1. Does anyone know what model it is?
  2. Any tips on where she could offer this antique pool table to potential buyers?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Here's a couple of pics for reference...

    It is very difficult to identify old Brunswick pool tables from photos like this which show only small parts of the detail. However, the distinct inlay pattern in the legs makes this one fairly easy to identify.

    It appears to be an antique 1920s Brunswick Medalist snooker table. See technical specs, details, and photos below.

    It's a stunningly beautiful design in my opinion, and in that size, and condition, may be worth quite a lot.

    It is impossible to value it based on what is shown in the photos. To properly appraise it one would need to see clear, well-lit photos of the pool table while assembled in order to assess it's overall condition, and whether it's current state is "all original" or not.

    The information below is from page 16 of the 1928 Brunswick Billiard Catalog from the Brunswick, Balke and Collender Company.
