Customer Question
Hello. In 1980, my husband...
Hello. In 1980, my husband purchased an antique BBC pool table in Buffalo, NY from a young man who said he had inherited it from his grandfather who took it from a Buffalo bar. The table had good lines but had been painted with brown paint. My husband stripped the paint and found a beautiful inlaid twining baskets pattern running down the sides and around the pedestal legs. Due to being painted all the inlay had been protected so it is in great. He finished the table with tung oil, replaced the felt and leather pockets. The table now belongs to our daughter in AR. She needs to see it since the house it has been in for the past 35 years is being sold. Could u give us an est value? Thanks!! I can send pictures.
