Own a piece of Billiard History with this 1920's Antique Brunswick Arcadian Carom Table. It is a 5x10 carom table used for playing "3 cushion billiards". (Learn more about the amazing skill game of 3 cushion billiards at: 3cushion.com)

The carom table is located in Palos Hills, IL. If buyer cannot pick up locally, then I can work with you to make shipping arrangements, but that will be at the buyer's expense.

The Brunswick Arcadian carom table is in good condition, but will need new felt upon reassembly. It has a slate bed that is at least 1" thick. The official Brunswick Billiards description of the Arcadian carom table is below.

Brunswick Arcadian Carom Table

Four legs or six legs; manufactured under 22 construction patents awarded from 1900 to 1916. From the 1926 Brunswick-Balke-Collender Co. catalog, page 14:

  • Wood and Finish: Furnished in handsomely figured mahogany with fancy inlay and hand-rubbed to a dull finish.
  • Construction: This table is a modification of the jumbo type construction. It is built with heavy 5-ply compound sides upon which is superimposed the top molding which is made 6" x 3 3/8" of tongued, grooved and glued, specially selected and scientifically kiln-dried lumber. The legs are made of double strength, glued and veneered stock of somewhat lighter design than the Hudson and Arcade legs. Rigidity of table is secured by fastening the solidly constructed side into the legs by means of maple dowels and heavy iron bolts. Rigidity further guaranteed by use of cross stretchers which extend from side to side and from end to end of table. Whole table is faced with a very good grade of mahogany veneer. The Arcadian table is beautifully designed and made under the most careful supervision of our technical experts.
  • Slate Bed: The slate bed consists of three pieces of the best quality slate, regulation size 1 inch thick, with all joints secured by brass dowels and sockets. It has no screw holes on the playing surface. If desired, 1 1/2" slate can be furnished.
  • Cushion Rails: The cushion rails of the Arcadian table are made up with what is known as a 3--ply body, consisting of three layers of woods of alternating grain glued together to insure the rails against climatic changes. The center layer of these plies is hard maple. This is the layer through which the cushion bolts are placed and maple is used because it holds the bolts firmly. The top of the rails is covered with a rail cap of compound construction faced with solid rosewood. The rails are securely fastened to the table by invisible cushion bolts. These bolts are covered by blind cushion rail facing which is built up of 5--ply compound construction and faced with a high grade mahogany veneer with fancy inlay.
  • Cushions: The Arcadian table can be furnished with any style Monarch perfect angle cushion.
  • Pocket Irons: The pocket irons are our No. 6 style, which are counter sunk in the ends of the cushion rails by means of brass sockets.
  • Playing Equipment: The playing equipment furnished with the Arcadian table is as ordered.
