Best quality red trimming leather and green fringe. This table was built in 1916 and named after johnny kling, a major league baseball catcher from the chicago cubs. After retiring from baseball in the 1900s, johnny kling became a professional billiard player and was a billiards champion in the mid 1910’s. This design is one of the high points of billiard design and it is obvious at first glance and dedicated to a charismatic man who was a champion player in the tournament billiards world. This particular table came from a chicago pool hall, per the last owner. Notice the chicago system of trap door and handle to show full rotation and order by which the balls were pocketed. All elements of the jumbo frame are included. Each of the frame pieces are numbered with a stamped in number and all numbers match.

Of the three pieces of slate, two are original and one appears to be a later vintage, but also of brunswick design and construction. This is a 10 foot pool table, not a snooker table. This was the professional table during the 1910’s.

Later on, the 9 foot table became the standard as many player felt that the 10 foot model was too difficult to play on and opted for an easier table. This table includes some of the original patina (it was not over-restored). Automatic ball return and the chicago system are very rare in these rare tables.

This was recently rated as a 9.5 out of 10 rating by a local antique billiards table expert, here locally. If only the table could tell its own story…. After the chicago pool halls closed down, this pool table ended up in las vegas. It was kept here for years until it was won in a poker game by a professional pool player who lived in san diego.
I bought the table from this man about 8 years ago. He was quiet elderly and had no use for the table. He had it stored and only partially put together. From this condition, i had the table 100% restored to the condition it is today and it sits in the basement of my home.
All pocket leathers are fully restored, all corner irons are restored, all cushions are state of the art and i have an extra set of speed cushions that will go with the table. I get almost 4 cushion bounce right now with the cushions on the table. Everything on this table is the best of the best.

You will not be disappointed. According to the website, this table weighs 2700 pounds. It obviously needs to me moved by a professional.

You will still have to hire someone at your home to unload the table and set it back up.The item “Brunswick Balke Collender KLING Pool Table (1916 era)” is in sale since Monday, December 16, 2013.

Antique Brunswick Balke Collender Co Pool Table Knife 1800’s Bowling Billards Nr

ANTIQUE BRUNSWICK BALKE COLLENDER Co POOL TABLE KNIFE 1800's BOWLING BILLARDS nr This is old and very rare. It was made in germany. Not sure of the date but it could be 1800’s or very early 1900’s.

I don’t think this was the run of the mill advertising knife. All the lettering and detail is embossed and raised up off of the metal. You decide if you want to leave it as it is or clean it up.

One of the small blades has the tip broken off as pictured. I looked, but i couldn’t find any information about this knife. I think it’s probably a pretty rare knife. Everything works as it should. You see some of the surface rust in spots. Leave it or clean it up. Again, this is a well made item and i think it’s pretty rare.

This magnificent 4 â½ x 9 foot brunswick conqueror pool table with ball return. Was professionally restored by highly respected west coast restorer, harvey rutledge of sequoia billiard supply in san carlos, california during 2004. I have had a âlove affairâ with classic brunswick balke & collender pool tables since the early 1970âs, and this table is far and away the rarest and best restored of the five different antique tables i have owned. It is the same model of brunswick pool table that is installed in the. Hearst castle in san simeon, california.

I had this table and its matching cue rack installed in our lake tahoe home up until its sale in december of last year. This pool table was professionally dismantled for storage by the same person who originally installed it in 2004. During its stay at lake tahoe, it was seldom used. But it was certainly a focal point of our homeâs interior! Those who did play our conqueror always commented on what a fine playing table it was. This particular conqueror has exceptionally rich looking book matched walnut butts with satinwood and rosewood inlays, and is one of the best original conqueror pool tables harvey rutledge ever restored. Was exceptionally nice to begin with.

The conqueror is considered by most the most desirable and imposing of all of the âjumbo leggedâ tables produced by brunswick during the mid to late 1920âs. I was fortunate to have also located the matching and extremely rare conqueror cue rack, which is also included in this sale.

This is a very rare cue rack. This rack was made specifically by the brunswick, balke & collender company for the conqueror model pool table. It is extremely rare and hard to find. The rack holds 12 cues and has the original brunswick decals and finish.

The rack is walnut and is inlaid with the woods used on the conqueror. The overall condition is excellent and is a very desirable accessory. Its overall dimensions are approximately 33″ x 58 “. The cue rack includes twelve virtually new cues. Nationwide transportation for this table can be arranged through wintersteen trucking, who specialize in pool table moving to anywhere in the united states at realistic rates.
Any west coast installation can be handled by the gentleman who installed, dismantled, and is storing our conqueror. I also have access to talented mid-american and east coast installation specialists who specialize in the installation of high end classic and antique pool tables. Brunswick balke & collender provided the following technical information to prospective customers in 1928.

Technical information: the information below is from page 14 of the 1928 brunswick billiard and bowling catalog, brunswick, balke and collender company. Also available in a “combination” style. All wood parts are of heavy compound construction from specially selected and scientifically dried lumber, veneered on both sides with a cross veneer of alternating grain and faced with the very best quality highly figured butt walnut veneer.

Top molding is built up of compound construction with a dimension of 8×3 3/8 and faced with cross veneer and butt walnut. Legs are of extra heavy quality lumber, perfect solidity being attained by means of double veneering inside and outside. Further rigidity obtained by glue blocks in all corners. Legs faced with best quality butt walnut to match sides. Rigidity of whole table and extra bearing surface for slate furnished by double cross stretchers running crosswise and lengthwise of the table.

Sides fastened into legs with maple dowels and heavy iron bolts keep table absolutely rigid. Whole table constructed in most thorough and careful manner, representing the highest achievement in the cabinet maker’s art. Used in the construction of the conqueror is beautifully figured butt walnut, inlaid with satinwood, ebony, and vari-colored marquetry lines. Slate bed: consists of three pieces of the best quality slate of regulation 1 thickness, with all joints secured by brass dowels and sockets.

Playing surface is entirely free from screw holes. If desired, slate bed of 1 1/2 thickness can be furnished. The cushion rails, which are one of the most vital parts of the table, are made up of a 3-ply body, consisting of three layers of woods of alternating grain glued together to insure the rails against climatic changes. The center layer of these plies is hard maple, the most suitable wood for holding cushion bolts firmly in place.

The body of the rail is covered with a rail cap of compound construction faced with solid rosewood. The rails are securely fastened to the table with invisible cushion bolts. These bolts are covered with blind cushion rail facing built up of 5-ply compound construction faced with specially selected high grade walnut veneer inlaid with satinwood, ebony and vari-colored marquetry lines. The conqueror table can be equipped with any style monarch perfect angle cushion. The pocket irons are no.

6 style, countersunk in the ends of the cushion rails by means of brass sockets. Every effort has been made to give an accurate and honest description of this item. Your satisfaction is very important to me.
