We were established well over 40 years ago by two brothers with a shared passion for fine furniture and the games of Billiards & Snooker, and rapidly became one of the foremost dealers in antique Billiard tables & period Snooker tables and accessories, driven by admiration for the wonderful workmanship of the Victorian & earlier periods. During our time we have acquired a vast collection of genuine period tables and accessories, and have a showroom here in West Byfleet, Surrey of some 3000sq.ft, where we display a range of goods fully assembled together with lighting and all other accessories. Viewing is actively encouraged, by appointment please - my name is Robert Donnachie and over the years I have built up an intricate knowledge of the manufacturers and table styles, all of which I am pleased to pass on. We have tables from Burroughes & Watts Ltd, Thurston & Co, George Wright, Orme & Sons of Manchester, John Bennett, Ashcroft of Liverpool, John Taylor of Glasgow, Norval & Sons, Harris & Sons of Dublin, Rileys of Accrington, together with many other early manufacturers. We have 'museum piece' tables made by Magnus with enamelled frameworks of solid slate, a cast iron table with the original steel bed sections by Harris, and a very early example of a Gillows table with slim & elegant spiral fluted legs in wonderful quality timber.
Some of our tables have historical provenance, some have been previously owned by the likes of Sir Tom Jones, Ringo Starr, Ozzy Osbourne, Eric Clapton etc. We carry out regular servicing to many tables of past customers in order to keep them in top playing condition.
The workmanship employed and the quality of timber in the construction of these antique tables will never be equalled as the raw materials have all but disappeared, so that they are a fine & enjoyable investment which can only appreciate. We can arrange worldwide delivery & installation.
Our client base is primarily for the private customer, but we also work with architects & interior designers to source to a particular style, and hire goods for film & TV dramas and general advertising.
