Established well over 40 years ago by two brothers with a shared passion for fine furniture and the games of Billiards & Snooker, we rapidly became one of the foremost dealers in antique Billiard tables & period Snooker tables and accessories, driven by admiration for the fine workmanship of the Victorian & earlier periods. During this time we have acquired a vast collection of genuine period tables and accessories - my name is Robert Donnachie and over the years I have built up a vast 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, and a cast iron table with the original steel bed sections by Harris
Some of our tables have historical provenance, some have been previously owned by the likes of Sir Tom Jones, 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 a particular style, and hire goods for film & TV dramas and general advertising.
