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 most people use an electric iron & 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! We can supply a piece of green baize to glue to the underside of the iron if it is to be used as a doorstop.
Price range £25 - £80 (this one £25)
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
