9ft Burroughes and Watts Billiards Table restoration.

Going through our workshops at the moment is this 9ft mahogany Burroughes and Watts billiards table.  This table had been ‘modernised’ in the 1980’s with unsympathetic mouldings being added, and the table being polished an interesting burgundy shade.  Oh dear.

We have replaced the cushion mouldings, and over the next few weeks we will strip the woodwork and completely restore the table to its former glory. We will be using traditional hand polishing and natural, high quality materials.  Watch this space for the next update.

 

Northamptonshire Skittles. Original Table.

THIS TABLE HAS BEEN SOLD. PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN SIMILAR TABLES.

We love this! An original Northamptonshire Skittles table, complete with pins and cheeses. Traditionally played in pubs, and also known as Hood Skittles, this game comes with three cheeses, and 9 pins.  The cheeses are thrown at the pins and bounce off the cushioned leather sides, whilst the hood prevents the cheese from flying about the pub.

These tables are usually larger, and it is very rare to find one in this smaller size.
