This is a fine example of the workmanship of 'Thurston & Co', showing a Full Size Billiard/Snooker table c1880 in superb quality mahogany. The 'fluted tulip' style of leg became extremely popular around the Victorian era and was copied by many manufacturers in all manner of differing proportions. The legs are hand carved from a single section of wonderful quality timber, the source of which has now virtually been exhausted. The timber was then slowly seasoned over many years before it was even used in the making of a table to minimise any distortion. This table has the original Welsh slate bed of 2" (50mm) thickness & was later upgraded with the fitting of the patented 'Steel Vacuum' cushions from Burroughes & Watts to give unrivalled response, such that these tables have a universal reputation as being the finest Billiard/Snooker tables ever made. Quality tables such as this will never be replicated so that they make a wise & enjoyable investment. We have a small degree of cosmetic work to finish to the polished surfaces but will retain the original patina of age, then fit new rubber to the cushions & supply with a full complement of matching period accessories.
