antique flat iron for Billiard tables

This is one example of a large collection we have of antique flat irons c1800 onwards, for the smoothing of billiard cloth once it has been fitted to the table. They were heated over a stove or a gas ring, so great care was needed to ensure that it was heated enough to have an effect without overdoing things & scorching the cloth. We have many with the manufacturers names such as Burroughes & Watts, Thurston, George Wright, Orme & Sons and will be gradually adding these to the site.

Nowadays we use electric irons, some with thermostat control, but these old originals are very collectible and even if not put to the original use they make a great doorstop!


Price range £40 - £100 (this one £40)


We have a massive stock of billiard, snooker & pool tables of all sizes together with vast collection of accessories such as scoreboards, new & antique cues & rests, cue stands, light fittings, together with ornamental items and memorabilia. We are gradually putting all our goods on the website but many items are rare & individual, so if you are seeking something particular please don't hesitate to ask.  Thanks for looking
