Revolving floor model cue stand, circa 1825 -1850, originally from a private British snooker club.
Solid mahogany and rosewood. Ball finials, one large above the center column, and three small topping the turned wood supports. Holds 15 cues (3 sets of 5) in ivory and brass clips, also places for 3 bridge sticks (or maces) in center of stand. Each rests in an individual leather-lined recess in the base, which has “bun” feet. In very good condition, appears to be all-original.
Dimensions: Base of stand: 19 inches across, height is 44 inches to top of center ball.
This is a rare and very attractive piece, and would be a perfect compliment to a home billiard room with an antique table.
