Is this a Wendt / Wenco Pool Table?


Is this a Wendt / Wenco Pool Table?

I was gifted a pool table from a friend of the family and was told it was an A. E. Schmidt pool table.

My family is from Missouri so it made sense.

I reached out to them with the serial number in hopes to get some info. They told me it was most likely built in 1988, end of story.

I sent the pics and serial number to Ken from classicbilliards.com who said it looked to be a Wenco (Wendt) pool table from around 1925.

I will try to attach some pics to see what you guys think.

Thanks. I just found this site today and already love it.

    I agree that it does have some characteristics of a Wendt pool table.

    Looking through the catalogs, a few designs come to mind, but unfortunately, the stock images don't have enough detail to say for sure.

    Here are a few that stood out as having similar-looking characteristics:

    A.E. Schmidt had a service division, and it was a common practice of the day for pool table service companies to swap original name plates with name plates of the service company itself. It may be what happened with this one.

    You've already called Ken—that's usually who I suggest for these types of identifications. Sorry I can't add more at this point, but as always, I'll continue to keep a look-out.

    Thanks, he mentioned it might be a Wendt Harvard pool table model.

    Either way, I think it's a pretty cool pool table.

    Thanks again!
