St. Elmo antique pool tableBefore restoration, St. Elmo antique pool table
Mahogany with white and green holly inlay. The finish is our regular No. 2 stock Mahogany color and is what is known as all egg shell gloss, which means that after being given the ordinary cabinet finish it is hand rubbed to a dull polish, which can be more easily kept clean than any other finish.
4 in. x 2 in. thick. compound construction built up from various kinds of hardwoods in different grains, to insure strength and prevent them being affected by climatic conditions. Invisible cushion bolts covered by blind cushion rails, built up in several thicknesses of material, placed in an alternate run of grain, finished with fancy figured veneer on the exterior. Cap rails 7/8 in., thick x 2¾ in. and finished with ¼ in. rosewood on top. Solid rosewood corners. Ivory diamond sights. Inlaid metal fancy name plate. 8 Rail bolts on each side and 4 on each end of 4½ x 9 table, and 10 rail bolts on each side and 5 on each end of 5 x 10 table.
The cushions furnished with this table are our Monarch style No. 1813 Match Game, perfect angle. These are made in our own rubber factory at Muskegon, Mich., and from a secret formula, which chemists of rival concerns have never been able to master. Our guarantee as to their accuracy of angle, speed and durability is evidenced by the name plate countersunk in the cap of the cushion rail.
The Cloth and Playing Equipment, such as Balls, Cues, Cue Racks, Markers, etc., supplied with this table are invariably of the very best quality. A special schedule embodying changes to suit the ideas of the purchaser is furnished in each individual case.
