very old billiards table

very old billiards table

My husband and I just looked at the top floor apartment of an old downtown building we are considering purchasing. In the front room, there is a "billiards" table that is obviously very old. It's about the size of a regulation pool table, solid wood and slate, but there are no pockets. It apparently comes with some of the original balls, also. I don't have a lot of details, but I don't know anything about a pool table with no pockets. Could someone please enlighten me?

    Billiards table. The ones with pockets are officially pocket billiards tables. See:

    no pockets means it is a carom table. Strategy involves hitting balls with cue ball a number of times, position, and use of rails. Balls are different. Look up carom or carombole
