This incredible snooker table was custom-crafted for England's Great Western Railway (GWR) by the renowned firm of Cox & Yeman of London. A stunning homage to the days of the great steam locomotives, this Cuban mahogany table features magnificent and intricate inlays of GWRs initials and popular trains, including the 4-2-2 and 2-2-2 engine classes, gracing the facade. The billiard table manufacturers of Cox and Yeman were established in the 1850s and were famed for the exceptional quality of their tables. Word spread quickly of the beauty and masterful craftsmanship of their tables, and the firm soon counted royalty and nobility from around the world as patrons, including the Duke of Wellington, the Duke of Richmond, the Nwab Nizam of Bengaland the King of Siam.

The table bears the engraved ivory plaque of Cox & Yeman that reads: "Cox & Yeman/Billard Table Manufacturers/184 Brompton Road/London" with the British Royal Seal.
