The Kling (four legs) - orginal Brunswick-Balke-Collender Co. catalog image
From Brunswick-Balke-Collender Co. Catalogue
This magnificent design marks a new era in the highest class of billiard table construction and ornamentation. It caries a suggestion of the classic Greek and ancient Egyptian, touching a period when the Oriental splendor bid fair to outrival 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.
