Brunswick Centennial is now for sale....One of the nicest, if not THE nicest Centennial in existence. NO expense spared with this table. This table was featured in Billiard Digest's Magazine. (Best Home Poolroom edition)
I had always wanted to restore an older Brunswick pool table and determined the model to be the nine foot Centennial commemorating their one hundred years in business. It was the table style in the billiard parlor on which I played during my youth in Illinois. I loved the Art Deco design, along with real Brazilian rosewood rails, and all that aluminum just waiting for a mirror finish. I found the table of my dreams for sale at Corner Pockets Billiards in Orlando, FL.The owner was selling his business and his prized Brunswick Centennial table. I bought the table, had it shipped to Arizona, refinished all the wood surfaces, had the aluminum polished, ordered new slate, Artemis cushions, plus Simonis cloth. I knew from previous experience to use the best possible table mechanic and discovered the best in the business to be Glen Hancock, aka ‘Real King Cobra’. I had to wait a good number of months for his service but it was worth the wait. It was assembled and finished to perfection.
After much searching, I discovered that there was no Art Deco style light fixture available that would complement the Centennial table. I proceeded to design and make the fixture combining various materials and components. The Diamond Billiard Company agreed to make an unfinished cherry wood frame to my specifications. I finished the wood, installed the leather designs in the ten panels, and added the cast silver Art Deco medallions. The top perimeter gallery has laser cut steel panels of my design that were chrome plated and hold the backlit stained glass. The fixture has six eight foot fluorescent tubes, weighs about 150 pounds, and is suspended by four pieces of steel tube. It was a monumental effort to make the fixture and install it in the thirteen foot ceiling.
The idea to make a cue rack started with the purchase of an antique bronze Art Deco lady figure. The antique ivory billiard ball held by the woman was an added embellishment. I designed and made the cue rack with all surfaces covered in various types of leather including python, shark, ostrich, and stingray. Recessed casters allow for mobility. The rack holds twenty cues.
Asking 16k for the package, that does not include crating and shipping. Table is located In Tucson Az. 520 977 3414
