Flowers case ID - 10-08-2019, 01:28 PM

Can anyone explain how to tell an original J Flowers case from the tribute cases by JB?

I was under the impression that John's had the date stamped in the middle of the logo under the bottom pocket.

What about the interior? Was it's tubes or soft such JB does or both?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Mike~

Johns tribute cases was a bit different than the original cases that Jay flowers sold under his name. If you can post a picture of the makers mark it will be much easier to ID.
Around 2004 is when jay last sold cases...

Cases made by Nora Van Horn and others for Jasper E. Flowers typically have a stamp that is a stylized NVH coupled with a carved signature logo that reads J.E.F. Q Case
|

The brand created by me, J.Flowers, whether, made in our shop or by the Jiasen company, will have the logo in an oval at the bottom of the front which says J.Flowers Cue Case. Those made by us will have the year and production # stamped into the center like this 2010-001. Except for those we made for Sterling Gaming 2013 which simply have 2013 stamped into the center.



The J.Flowers tribute cases that I created have many differences in construction. At the beginning I offered either Secure Tubes(tm) or UltraPad(tm) interiors on request. The J.E.F. Q Cases were only made with tubes and mostly with a red cloth lining.





Tubes

UltraPad

1994 is when Jay stopped selling cases. Nora Van Horn retired and Jay didn't get another leatherworker to continue.
