    Set of 19th century ivory billiard balls made by one of the most important billiard table makers in Britain of the late 19th and early 20th century - Orme & Sons Ltd. The balls are in the bottom half of their original cardboard box and show extensive patination from years of use. The labelling on the box would indicate the age of the balls to be after 1896 but pre 1901 by when they had opened showrooms in Liverpool and Belfast as well.

     
    The balls have noticeable marks consistent with their age with multiple chalk and rub marks on all three balls. The colour of the red ball shows noticeable wear and variation from use. The distinctive ivory grain pattern is clearly visible on all three balls.
     
    Orme & Sons were founded in 1845 in and by 1880 they had branches in London and Glasgow, and enjoyed the patronage of the Prince of wales. In 1885 the company was instrumental in the formation of the Billiard Association and one of their partners was one of the original committee members. They became Orme & Sons Ltd in 1896 and in 1901 became by Royal Appointment to King Edward VII.

    Ball And Claw Antiques

    Ball & Claw Antiques is influenced by multiple people with diverse qualifications, backgrounds and experience so the mix of items we find, restore and sell represent their various interests, passions and skills.
     
    We focus on quality items which even if worn with the rigours of time and use, still capture the imagination or attract the eye with their colours or shape. Some antiques wear their age with ease and carry the age mellowed colour and scars of use without harming their form or use but others are not so lucky. Where necesary and practical we will try to sympathetically restore damaged antiques with minimum intervention so that function or form is restored without harming their natural patination and other signs of age. Sometimes we will restore an item even when it doesnt make financial sense to do so - because sometimes we just cant help but feeling that it deserves to be saved for future generations.
