Identity of Table?

Identity of Table?

I recently bought a house and the past owner left a pool table. It is a 4.5' by 9'. The plate on it reads:

Monarch Cushions The Brunswick Balke Collender Co

I tried to take a picture of the plate but couldnt get the picture to come out very well. I will attatch a couple pictures. I have no experience with pool tables so any information would be helpfull.

    That is a Brunswick Wellington made in the late 1890's

    Yeap...what Rick said....If you would like more information on the table, visit Brunswicks site, they have a section dedicated to their antique tables with all the information. From past experience, looking at your photos, the table will need to have the cushions replaced. Usually you can not tell this from a photo, however, the stained cloth is usually a dead give away. If you plan on playing, contact a local company for a quote on replacement.

    Thanks guys....I never imagined it being that old. Does anybody have an idea what this table might be worth if sold in present condition...I know its hard to tell from the pictures but it does seem to be pretty solid, and yes a couple of the bumpers are definetly dead. Thanks.

    The value is tricky Your best bet to find out the value would be to contact a company that deals with antique tables on a regular bases. There are a handful of them out there that are very helpful, one I always trust is Ken Hash in Maryland, Classic Billiards. He has always been very helpful to us. Shoot him an email and I am sure he can give you some more info.


    Best of luck,
