A lovely Half Size (8ft x 4ft play area) Billiards table by 'John Bennett of London' c1880 in mahogany and standing upon four turned legs. The table has the original polish which is finely preserved with a lovely faded patina, and the original 3-section slate bed of 4cm thickness. The cushions have been fitted with new rubber facings and fine finish green baize, and bolting directly into the edge of the slate bed gives an excellent playing response (most smaller tables have a thinner slate bed with cushions screwed to a timber 'slate lining', resulting in limited cushion response). A further advantage of a table with a slate bed in several sections is the ease of installation where access is limited.
The table will be supplied with a matching period scoreboard and wall cue holder, period rests and a comprehensive accessory pack of new balls etc.
Please note that this price may NOT include delivery charges which the seller may charge extra for.
