An Outstanding Gillows Antique Billiards - Snooker - Pool Marking Board, circa 1810

This mahogany antique Billiards marker or score board made by Gillows of Lancaster and London has a rectangular panel with two slides, pegboards and spots marked out in a paler inlaid wood, all within a reeded frame with two stretchers supported on outswept feet with brass castors.

It is marked in a painted cartouche, "Gillows London and Lancaster", English, circa 1810, beautiful original colour and patina.

We have never seen a comparative scorer of this quality or form in twenty five years as specialist dealers.

Footnote: In "Gillows of Lancaster and London 1730-1840," Woodbridge, 2008, Vol.I p423, Susan Stuart has a very similar scorer with an angled board described thus;

The marker was made in mahogany inlaid with a lighter regular close-grained wood, possibly orangewood. The words GILLOW LONDON and LANCASTER are carefully painted, not inlaid, onto an oval cartouche.
