I find your points interesting: The patent describes features not present on my father's table...except the sloped base
I had already browsed the Brunswick pages you mention, which is where the 'Victor' model reference came from. The sketch of the Victor model has only 3 bolts between the pockets and I couldn't find a model with sloped sides with 4 bolts.
The Aviator was another similar design, but I can't believe the Brunswick historians would get the number of bolts wrong...it still has only 3.
I browsed the entire list again and, interestingly, only a couple of models incorporate features of the patent, including the Marquette, Rochester, Westminister & Pfister.
Ah-HAH!, I did not see the Mikado before. The Mikado is the only model that has the exact same slope & style of legs. However, once again the quality of sketch leaves out the key detail of the # of bolts.
My father did say that the slate (of which I would have to confirm his memory of # of pieces) was secured with bolts that had to be overfilled/smoothed on assembly.

I'm asking him to confirm some details of his memory of assembly/construction vs. the description above & the patent # as well (which I believe you correctly noted).
