A fine original 'billiard / snooker / life pool wall scoreboard in Walnut by 'Stevens & Sons, London' c1870, the centre slate marking area surmounted with rotating numbered rollers for scoring at billiards & snooker, and flanked each side with four designated slides for the playing of 'life pool'. These slides open to reveal 'mother of pearl' markers for keeping score as lives are lost. These scoreboards are becoming increasingly rare & this example is in outstanding original condition. The game of life pool is wonderful for involving several players of mixed abilities, this board allowing eight different players to take part in this very social game. A rare & lovely piece of billiards history..
Size - 30" wide x 22" high ( 76cm x 55cm)
