Specialist dealers in finest Period & Antique Billiard & Snooker tables

                    LATEST NEWS !

After over 45 years of most enjoyable trading in the finest quality of Billiard-Snooker tables and accessories, it is time for me to retire and so all stock must go. We are proud to have been leading specialists for the supply of genuine antique English billiard & snooker tables & accessories of the highest quality including cue stands, scoreboards and cues. We currently have a stock of around 30 tables, amongst them a threequarter size Magnus table c1830 made entirely of slate, a solid cast iron table c1850 by Harris of Dublin and many other wonderfully individual tables with provenance plus an extensive collection of billiard & snooker collectibles. We will be auctioning most goods within the coming weeks and posting further details, but in the meantime remain open for viewing & selling.

We are astounded how so many people are easily brainwashed by clever marketing into purchasing new imported tables of inferior materials & low quality at high prices, when in the UK we have been world leaders in the production of the finest quality goods made of the very best materials in the world & which will vastly outlast anything produced in the modern age. Most of our tables are at least 100 years old & when restored are perfectly capable of at least another 100 years of service, being constructed of wonderful materials & finishes impossible to replicate to the same degree in the modern age. It seems that substance is no longer of value, with 'bling' being the most important component whatever material is below the surface. Very sad & short sighted in my humble opinion, so that I am pleased to be retiring on several counts.

I take this opportunity to thank all of my past clients for their valued custom and invite all, old or new to the showroom to view my stock of remaining goods.
