A fine example of the classic Billiards/Dining table made by Riley c1910 in solid mahogany, on Victorian turned legs, with a play area of 7ft x 3ft6ins. It is completely original in construction and the polished surfaces have a lovely patina. The cushions have been fitted with new rubber facings and the cloth replaced with new West of England fine-finish green baize. The dining surface is made up of five leaves which cover over the playing surface, and the table has an adjustable height mechanism by way of the patent Riley ratchet which raises the playing surface up from the leg framework by about 10cm for comfortable play. All parts bear the original Riley stamps and numbers, and complete tables of this age and quality are quite rare as many of these tables have been robbed of their original tops and fitted with replacements. It comes complete with an original Riley scoreboard, snooker balls, cues, triangle, brush and chalk
