Manufacturer of Antique Pool Table


Manufacturer of Antique Pool Table

I am trying to find the manufacturer and model of this antique pool table. It has brass-like pocket irons, leather pockets, and exposed rail bolts.

    Certainly looks like an antique Brunswick Balke Collender pool table.

    A couple more photos would be helpful.

    Close up of the name plate, as well as some clear shots of the side aprons and legs, from both the long side and the short side.

    The name plate was replaced by my Father in the 1970's so I am not sure if it is correct. He passed away in 1977. I was told 1889 was the year but cant find much before 1904 anywhere.

    There are numbers stamped in the underside. See photos.

    I replaced the pockets but included pic of ones I replaced.

    I am also curious about pulleys under each end.

    Thanks again,
    Keith

    Your date range seems appropriate based on the style of rail bolts, but I am out of my depth on this one, so I am going to refer you to two experts. You should reach out to them, in this order:

    1. The guy you need to talk to is Ken Hash at Classic Billiards in Fallston, MD. He's the guy to talk to for this type of stuff. He is always happy to give free advice etc.

      (410) 256-8388

    2. If Ken can't help you, try Joe Newell out of Clay Center, KS. He runs Newell's Antique Billiard Supply, and he is the foremost Brunswick expert in the US.

      (785) 632-5955

    It's a great antique pool table you have there.

    Good luck and let us know what you find out.
