French Billiard Table - Gothic Revival

Exceptionally rare and beautifully constructed, this French antique billiards table is a celebration of the Gothic Revival style and of innovative 19th century design. Architectural in form, this rosewood table is both a decorative and constructive masterpiece. Friezes adorned with detailed inlay depict allegorical scenes of a victorious France, and are supported by the table's massive legs. These legs, with their elegant spiral columns and pointed arches, also conceal cleverly disguised trap-door ball releases. The slate-topped table also features two functioning game counters integrated into the bumpers at each end, perfect for keeping accurate score. Though smaller in size than regulation tables, tables maintains a dominating presence that commands attention in any setting. Such an intricately crafted piece as this would surely have been made for only the most affluent customer. To find its like in such impeccable condition is extremely rare and astonishing. The table features its original label, and is marked "Ph. ROBIN, 44 Rue Ferrandiere LYON" on each counter.
