The Minn Billiard Company


The Minn Billiard Company

I am restoring a 9' billiard table. The rail plaque (pic attached) says "The Minn Billiard Company" in Milwaukee. They were established in 1885. The previous owner stated that the table was of 1903 in which I was skeptical because the body and legs have a black and white plastic band inlay. But I found (the ONLY) ad through on-line search that shows Minn Billiards Company in a 1914 issue of the Milwaukee Journal. I contacted the Public Library up there for more information. So I am less skeptical of 1903 upon my findings. Whats different is that the wood rails are supported by a 3/16" steel "L" channel (pic attached). Now I know why the rails were so heavy upon dismantling! The slate is 1.6" thick.

Do you know of anything of this company and their tables?

Regards
