The broken pediment is surmounted by a central gadrooned finial above an egg and dart stepped cornice.
A central revolving double sided slate /mirror panel is flanked by lettered sliding panels with ivory bosses which move to reveal hidden boxwood and ebony ‘stars’ to mark the game of Life Pool, while revolving number bars which rotate from 1-100 have ivory reeded markers. The base comprises a ball storage compartment with a glazed and hinged door, complete with lockable drawers for stake holding and retrieval.
The revolving billiard cue carousel in solid figured oak, also by Buroughes & Watts, has gadrooned finials above a tri-form top with the original ivory clips for cue retention. The central fluted column is flanked by three similar uprights raised on a revolving base supported by three massive lion’s paw feet with scrolling acanthus foliage.
English circa 1880.
Kinross House was built between 1685-1693 by one of Scotland's premier architects and career politicians, sir William Bruce (1630- 1710), to be his new home on the Loch Leven estate which he bought in 1675 from the earls of Morton. The Paladian mansion became one of Bruce's triumphs and it remains to this day, one of Scotland's most important country houses and was described by Country Life (February 16, 1951) as ‘the complete expression in stone of the Renaissance in Scotland’. Bruce’s other notable projects included the remodeling of Holyrood house, Edinburgh, Thirlestane Castle, Hopetown house and Caroline Park, Midlothian.
