Alcocks first produced the Salisbury model Billiard Table in the earliest years of the twentieth century, doubtless to honour Robert Gascoyne-Cecil 1830-1903, third Marquess of Salisbury. Salisbury had served as Prime Minister of Great Britain on three occasions.

The Salisbury model Table was manufactured using Australian timbers, principally Queensland Silky Oak. With the lighter toned finish and unique grain pattern of this timber the Salisbury model presented a contrast to the heavier darker finishes of High Victorian Furniture. In style the Salisbury model is notable for its distinctive richly fluted leg, and its hand carved arches and knee panels.

A Salisbury model table No 4663 was installed as the centrepiece match table at Alcocks Billiard Parlour at 155 Elizabeth St Melbourne, and it was on that table that the Boy Wonder George Gray made the then World s Record Break of 836 at billiards on the 25th of August 1909.
