This custom made 4.5' x 9' regulation size pool table would have been one of Oliver Briggs most amazing works of art. Produced around 1890, this table comprises of a mahogany body with rosewood rail tops. The body is adorned with very intricate carvings, eagle talon and ball feet, as well as over 100 pieces of solid brass ornamentation.
Brunswick Balke Collender produced three models of the Cabinet pool table, “Model's” #1, #2, and #3. This "Cabinet #2" model is quite possibly the rarest of the 3. I have seen only one other in my 35 years in the billiard business. This table is unique in that it has storage units in the ends of the table, a storage drawer on one end for cues, and a storage drawer on the other end for balls, chalk, triangle, etc. The table is quarter-sawn oak with extensive satin nickel finish metal accents. This table dates approximately to 1898 and is a 4.5x9 regulation size billiard table.
