An Antique Billiard - Snooker table designed by Frank Brangwyn

June 2015

This wonderful Aesthetic movement Antique Billiard - Snooker table is our latest purchase and what an addition it is!Designed by Sir Frank Brangwyn circa 1915 it is identical to an earlier table that was commissioned by Brangwyn and illustrated  in Herbert Furst's book, the Decorative Art of Brangwyn, London 1924.

 

The form is basic, but the insertion of upright supports which attach to the frame and external stretcher arrangement elevates the table to an iconic design classic.

The cushions are extremely deep with an elegant sweep and applied decorative carved patrrae bosses.

The table is manufactured from solid oak and supports a five piece slate bed, it listed under our Antique table section see below.
