The Alexandria billiard table's original Catalog image from Brunswick
From Brunswick-Balke-Collender Co. Catalogue
The Alexandria with six legs is a strikingly handsome and substantial billiard table. The magnificent design marks a new era in the highest class of billiard table construction and ornamentation. It carries a suggestion of the classic Greek and ancient Egyptian, touching a period when the Oriental splendor of luxurious Alexandria bid fair to out rival the more classic tones and studied effects characterizing the era when Athens claimed the right to school the world in literature and art. The severely plain in furniture is now giving way to the lighter and more artistic coloring effects of inlaid decoration.
