Burroughes and Watts Snooker Table.
A very attractive antique full size snooker table originally manufactured by Burroughes & Watts, circa 1910. The table is mahogany and incorporates good solid turned legs. The playing surface is a slate bed covered in green playing cloth. One of the end cushion rails has an ivory plaque with the maker's details on 'Burroughes and Watts, The EUREKA, extra low fast cushions, Soho Square, London'. The cushion bolts are hidden by turned mahogany knobs, the leg bolts hidden by wooden slides. The pockets are leather covered with net bags and with return rails. This table is being sold for a client and will be supplied with balls for snooker, two cues and one rest.
This is a wonderful full size antique snooker table in excellent condition.
Burroughes and Watts is one of the best known manufacturers of Billiard tables and accessories. It is also one of the oldest, most prestigious and best known names in billiards and snooker. Originally founded in London in 1835, it soon flourished as a leading manufacturer, gaining a formidable reputation world-wide for the quality of their billiards tables, cues and accessories. By 1900, not only did they have branches in many of the major cities in the U.K., but also in many countries throughout the world, including India, China, Australia, South Africa and Canada.
