This superb quality mahogany full size English Billiard / Snooker table is the quintessence of Gillows craftsmanship,the rectangular top is set upon eight tapering turned and reeded legs,the restrained decoration of turned bosses to the sides and elegant reeding to the edges accentuates the wonderful colour of the wood.
signed Gillows. English circa 1820.

The Mahogany is an extremely good cut with substantial superstructure and good early flat slate bed.
The table has been refurbished by hand, new championship NR Rubbers have been fitted and a new cloth applied to the cushions and bed,we have opted for a sympathetic green however the cloth colour can be changed.

the table comes complete with:
- A set of 22 of Aramith resin snooker balls
- A set of resin Billiard balls
- A table brush , mahogany triangle and chalk
- A selection of 15 various ash cues and rests
Gillows made very few billiard tables and only ever as important commissions for landed gentry and the aristocracy.A similar table almost as good as this one is illustrated in Susan E Stuart's "Gillows of Lancaster and London" published by the Antique Collector's Club.
