Old Fischer Pool Table Info


Old Fischer Pool Table Info

My dad got this old Fischer pool table when I was around 5 or 6 years old (1976-1977) from his uncle. Not sure of the exact year or model name.

Does anyone have any info on this Fischer pool table?

    I am 99% sure it is a Fischer Cavalier pool table. Not sure which generation though (there were four or five) and thus, not sure of the year.

    Lots of them come up for sale, usually asking around $500. Most don't sell for that much (not because they aren't good pool tables, but rather, because the market is flooded with used pool tables, and these Fischer pool tables have a style that is quite out-dated for today's homes).

    Here is the Fischer Cavalier pool table brochure / catalog page. Your's isn't the EXACT one in the brochure (based on differences in the legs), so it's probably a later iteration e.g. Fischer Cavalier II or Fischer Cavalier III, etc.

    Cool. Thanks for the info. First time I’ve ever seen the Fischer Cavalier brochure. I’m going to try and restore my dads as it will be in our basement. I grew up playing pool on it and now my kids play on it.

    That's great! It's a solid, well-playing pool table. Nice to have the family history to go along with the project. Makes it all worth it.

    Would love to see some project photos and definitely some "after" pics when you get it all done.

    Good luck!

    By the way I just found another, a Fischer Cavalier VII pool table, and this one has different legs from those on yours and from those on the brochure. This generation also has score-counters in the rails.

    FYI - How weird is this. Another almost identical Fischer Cavalier pool table to yours just posted here looking for valuation. You might want to have a look.

    I have a similar pool table with the same Fischer manufacturer's identification tag. Mine is a coin slot pool table. It has a one-piece slate base which the Edison Billiard Company, who moved the pool table for me, said it had a custom slate size. It is slightly thicker that a typical 3/4" piece. The head guy said it was the heaviest piece he had ever moved.

    He told me they would have sold that pool table at $800 as-is, in their store in Edison, Ohio and with new bumpers (these are original), new felt cover, and a new or repaired side panel, it would have been priced at $1100.

    He asked how much I paid for it. It was donated to the church my wife attends from an estate. I got it for free when people heard how much it would cost to move it ($350). They said it should have cost more to move it, but they didn't know it was so heavy. Four of us couldn't lift one corner.

    He told me judging by the return mechanism it was as older table than he had seen before for a pay table.

    My serial number is 59839. You just gotta love it, huh?

    Great info, especially the part about the valuation and pricing you got from Edison Billiard Company.

    Any chance you can post up a few photos of pool table?
