Original Balabushka cues 5 left - 03-25-2018, 07:13 PM

OA part of history!!!

Something really special!!!

BALABUSHKA


All cues have two shafts at
approximately 12.75 MM with Ivory ferrules, save one.... cues are just under
58 inches (between 57.5 and 58 inches) pretty much standard for that time
period. Average weight 20 ounces, again standard for the cue and circa.
The fanciest cue at the top or side of the photos has a new Irish Linen
wrap which we installed as the original wrap was shot... the cue right next
to it has only one original shaft and one by Pete Tascarella. All cues are in super nice condition, straight and sound.

ASKING PRICES: The fanciest cue: SOLD … The one next to it: Not for sale… the next with the Ivory arches in the butt sleeve: $22,000… Next with the gold colored rings on the sleeve: $18,000… Next cue with the Blue Acrylic rings on the butt sleeve, Black leather wrap: $20,000… and the last cue with the Irish Linen $10,500… The cue at the Bottom with the Black Linen is no longer available as that fanciest cue and the cue next tobit.
All cues comes with a letter of authenticity and can be personally checked.
all cues available, except the one at the bottom of the photo with the black Linen wrap, fanciest cue and the cue next to fanciest with Burton Spain forearm.

Fancy cue with the New Irish Linen wrap is a Gus Szamboti forearm…

Cue with Blue Acrylic sleeve and leather wrap is also a Gus Szamboti forearm…

Ivory arch cue, Gus Szamboti forearm…

All others are Burton Spain or Davis/Spain forearms…

All cues are just under 58 Inches in overall length, and weigh on average 20 ounces… Shaft diameters are light 13 / full 12.75mm … all have Ivory ferrules…

The only cue with Ivory inlays is the Gus with the Ivory arches…. All other inlays are Mother of Pearl, the white rings above the wraps are white Phenolic.

The Blue Acrylic butt sleeve cue has the original black leather wrap. All cues are straight and sound, show there age, some fifty plus years,, but are in excellent used condition.

Pete Tascarella has cleaned and polished them… not refinished… with the exception of the new wrap on the fancy cue as we had no choice but to replace as it was cut and unraveling

THE FANCIEST ONE IS SOLD !!!

Please only serious buyers...more pictures available!

Now we know why there are so few Bushkas. The OP is hoarding them.

Very nice cues and good luck with the sale.

8 rings, 5 rings, above the wrap, love that look.

The Spain blank with the black Penn linen is special in it's simplicity.
