An Outstanding Gillows Antique Billiards - Snooker - Pool Marking Board, circa 1810
c. 1815 United Kingdom
Offered by Billiard Room Ltd.
It is marked in a painted cartouche, "Gillows London and Lancaster", English, circa 1810, beautiful original colour and patina.
We have never seen a comparative scorer of this quality or form in twenty five years as specialist dealers.
Footnote: In "Gillows of Lancaster and London 1730-1840," Woodbridge, 2008, Vol.I p423, Susan Stuart has a very similar scorer with an angled board described thus;
The marker was made in mahogany inlaid with a lighter regular close-grained wood, possibly orangewood. The words GILLOW LONDON and LANCASTER are carefully painted, not inlaid, onto an oval cartouche.
