Antique Snooker Tables

At Brown’s Antiques we specialise in antique snooker tables, antique billiards tables and antique snooker dining tables.

We carefully restore these antique tables by hand, using traditional restoration methods, high quality materials and French polishing.  We restore these tables to the customer’s specification, taking into account their preference for colour and sheen of wood, colour of baize etc.

We do not stock modern or reproduction snooker tables, we are antique dealers and restorers, with many years experience in restoration of antique snooker and billiards tables.
