A fine example of a classic Billiard/Dining table made by E.J. Riley c1915 and in solid mahogany throughout. It is completely original in construction with the original 5-piece solid timber dining surface and standing on their trademark style of turned/fluted legs. All of the polished surfaces have a lovely aged patina which we have retained & revived during our renovation works, and the green baize has been replaced with new fine finish 'West of England' green baize cloth to the bed & cushions. The table has an adjustable height mechanism by way of the patented Riley ratchet system which raises the playing surface up from the leg framework by about 12cm to give comfort in both dining and playing positions. All parts bear the original Riley stamps & numbers, and complete tables of this age & quality are becoming increasingly rare as many were separated due to the dining surface timber being used in the making of other furniture to the high quality & stability. It also has the advantage of being fitted with lifting handles which swivel out at each end of the table, so making the raising & lowering operation much easier to perform.
