Antique c1890s Brunswick Balke Collender 9′ Union League pool table with accessories. All parts except legs stamped with “1048” serial number (slates are stenciled). Includes original balls (1 and 3 ball missing but has cue), slightly used high quality set of pool balls for play, antique ball holder, antique stick holder, hand chalk holder, stringer for straight pool, many more minor accessories. According to BBC’s website the table was manufactured between 1890s-1910. Table has been in the family since it was given to my great great uncle in the 1930s after a pool hall his landlord owned in Winchester, VA closed. It saw a lot of use in my great great uncle’s then my father’s basements until 2008, when we had it COMPLETELY restored and installed on my second floor (no more shooting around the hot water heater). Most of the fasteners, washers, and gaskets are original – including the leather gaskets used behind the rail bolt washers. Three piece slates are original. All wood is original. Installed new Simonis felt and rail cushions after restoration. Pockets are not original but I still have the original pocket castings (original leather rotted out). Currently the table is disassembled and in temperature controlled storage. I had to perform latest disassembly and transport to storage myself which resulted in minor dings on the edges while removing the slates. These areas are hidden by the rails when assembled. One of the slates is marked with BBC’s Baltimore (at the time) address. Have many more pictures showing different stages of disassembly as well as fully assembled that I can provide.

Brunswick Balke Collender Conqueror antique pool table, fully restored. This is a nine foot pro (100″ x 50″ playing surface), convertible table, with three piece one inch slate. Patented 8/7/1928, production ending in 1931. Being a depression era table with a short production run, these tables are hard to come by. They are also one of the most sought after tables from the arts and crafts period. Complete convertible tables are more scarce yet. Convertible tables allow you to switch the rail tops between pocket and billiard. Complete with both sets of rails, along with the original rail storage box. Table parts have all matching numbers, original hardware, except for a few replaced screws. As some people prefer to make their own choices regarding cloth, pockets and cushions. The irons on a convertible table are not the standard #6. They will need to be sent in to be recovered. Hood leather is an excellent option. I do not know how long that owner had the table, or if they were the original owners. The overwhelming majority of tables found today, spent most of their life in a pool hall. Finding their way into homes as they closed down. Often seeing a lot of abuse from the patrons. I have no way of knowing where this table spent its first 20 years, but evidence suggests it has always been a private table. Note in the last photo, look at the underside of the rail liner. There are very few tack or staple holes. This table has not seen many cloth changes. But most important was condition. This table was in exceptional (pre-restoration) condition. Other options may be available. If you can get it for less, then it is less. You can source this on your own or I can assist you. I welcome any requests to inspect this table in person. Nobody will be disappointed. Feel free to contact me with any questions. The item “Brunswick Balke Collender Conqueror Antique Billiard and Pool Table” is in sale since Thursday, May 23, 2019.

BRUNSWICK POOL TABLE AND ROOM ACCESSORIES. A 1906 Brunswick 9 foot pool table with all the accessories for a complete antique game room. Brunswick 1906 Nine Foot Wellington model pool table with near new simonis cloth. Totally restored with the original cushions, top rails and pockets replaced. Oak light with two 6 foot florescent tubes. Brunswick Oak cue rack. Brunswick Oak ball storage rack. Set of quality Balls and wood rack. Heavy vinyl and canvas bed cover. It was in a disassembled pile and had the original brown finish. I had considerable experience working on antique furniture so I began the restoration. The Wellington model originally had a one piece main frame with detachable legs. However someone had broken the frame into the four basic pieces. I chose to leave it that way and devised a bolting and dowelling system in each corner to recreate a secure solid frame. The top rails were originally popular with rosewood veneer. They were rough so I created new top rails from white oak and installed mother of pearl diamond sights. The main frame is popular with an oak quarter sawn veneer. Popular is a very stable wood that resists warping. Once I finished with the rails I sent them to A. Louis and they installed new high quality cushions. This table is well travelled. From Ohio it went to Hereford TX, then Las Vegas, NV, then Aransas Pass TX. The photos were taken in our Texas house. Then we moved to Boynton Beach, FL. And began to downsize so I no longer have room to set it up. The table is 100% complete with all parts and has a stamped numbering system on the slates, rails and frames to facilitate reassembly. The slates are leveled with hardwood wedges. The bed dimensions are 50 inches X 100 inches cushion to cushion. This is a great playing table. The new owner can pick the table up or retain a moving company. I will assist this process in any way I can.

The cushion rails of the Regina table are made up with what is known as a 3-ply body consisting of three layers of woods of alternating grain glued together to insure the rails against climatic changes.

The top of the rail is covered with a rail cap of compound construction faced with solid rosewood. The rails are securely fastened to the table by invisible cushion bolts.
