Lovely half size (8ft x4ft play area) Billiards Dining table in English Oak, made by Riley c1920. This table is completely original in construction and the polish work has been sympathetically restored with a lovely patina. The cushions have been fitted with new rubber facings and the cloth is currently replaced with new West of England fine-finish green baize. The dining surface is made in five interlocking leaves to cover the playing surface. This 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 very 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
