Full Size Antique Canted Leg Model No 1848 from “Trawalla”
Price $22,800.00 inc GST
Trawalla, one of Melbourne‘s most spectacular Victorian Toorak mansions, was originally built in 1867 /1868 and greatly extended in 1885. Much later, it was subject to an absolutely remarkable renovation during the earliest years of this century.
At the centre of the home there is a truly magnificent Billiard Room, complete with high clerestory window and original blue stone piers. Situated on those piers, has been another fine structure from the Victorian era: Full Size Alcock Billiard Table No 1848.
Table No 1848, an outstanding example of the canted leg style developed by Alcocks, was made during the 1870s at our manufactory, then at 132 Russell Street Melbourne. This billiard Table was constructed using Tasmanian Blackwood; the cushion rails feature especially vivid figured (fiddleback) timber grains.
An opportunity to purchase Table No 1848 has become available due to the recent sale of the magnificent Trawalla property.
The Table is presented in mint condition: with new English Trufast moulded rubber cushions, pocket openings cut and shaped to conform to International Billiards and Snooker Federation (1981) templates for match Play; and entirely new Fine Grade West of England cloth by Strachan & Co.
