Original Catalog Description

The finest billiard table at any price. Styled in a striking modern design that utilizes handsome aluminum, the Centennial retains a traditional charm with its rich rosewood rails and smooth oval legs. The Centennial skillfully combines new functional features with the construction principles and superiority of workmanship that have made Brunswick tables world-famous for more than 100 years. Its stability, and its perfectly-matched perfectly level slates, give the Centennial a playing surface that is unequaled in Billiards ...a surface that will give your players "championship" conditions every time they play.  Extruded aluminum aprons give the Centennial utility as well as beauty, with a satin finish that is mar-and-wear resistant. The bottoms of the gracefully tapered legs are covered with Matching aluminum to protect the legs from scuffing. Easily cleaned aluminum cuts maintenance time.  Advanced styling, precision engineering and manufacturing, plus the advantages of Brunswick's famous cushions, slates and cloth make the Centennial the finest table in billiards.  Add distinction and "player appeal" to your room ...give your customers the table the champions use Brunswick Centennial.
