In 1837 we had the honour of specially designing and installing for H.M. Queen Victoria a 'Royal' billiard table. Based on the specifications of this table we are proud to offer the 'Victorian' - a table of distinct design and quality.
The table is made throughout using carefully selected mahogany timbers, enhanced with attractively carved mouldings. The rigid underframe is supported on eight 200mm diameter legs turned to an attractive reeded profile. The underframe supports not only the outer edges of the slate but also the centre, a feature which is absent in many of its competitors.
The precision ground 45mm thick slate is in five sections, with the meeting edges fitted with brass dowels. The surface is carefully checked in our factory, to ensure perfect accuracy. During manufacturing we assemble the table and the slates and cushions are individually matched.
The cushion rails are manufactured from specially selected, attractively grained mahogany, shaped to a distinct profile. The securing bolts are concealed by solid sliding panels in the same high quality timber, decorated to accord with the rest of the table. The cushions are then fitted with superior quality match rubbers.
The bed & cushions are covered in the finest quality cloths from Strachan or Hainsworth if you prefer something different to the traditional colours. The solid brass pocket plates are covered in genuine moulded leather, deluxe cotton pocket nets and snooker pocket rails.
The polishwork is of an extremely high standard, superior quality durable polishes carefully built layer upon layer , bringing out the best in the natural wood grain and then finally hand burnished.
A full accessory and maintenance package is included with each table comprising of; 1 set of full size Tournament Champion Match snooker balls, 1 hardwood triangle, 4 full size ash and hardwood butted cues, 1 four hand marking board with brassed rods and pointers to match the table, 1 wall cue rack (to match the table) for 6 cues, 1 cross rest with brass head, 1 spider rest with brass head, 1 long or half butt cue, 1 long or half butt rest with brass head, 2 pairs of brass rest hooks, 1 pair of butt hooks, 1 heavy duty bottle green dust cover with 8" skirt and for maintenance, 1 pure bristle brush, 1 straight edge, 1 half circle and 1 thermostatically controlled electric iron, complete with lead and stand.
