A true antique, the Brunswick-Balke-Collender Madison carom table is a real heirloom piece. This style of billiard table was even granted a design patent back in 1912 for its originality, and has been manufactured under several patents that were granted between 1900 and 1916. The Madison has what we call a ‘semi-jumbo’ framework, meaning it is rather substantial in stature and is extremely heavy and very bulky. However, this doesn’t stop it from being a full K.D. (Knock Down) cabinet, as it is built in sections and can therefore be taken apart for easy transportation.
The Brunswick Madison carom table is constructed from quarter-sawed oak and mahogany, with the oak being finished in a medium golden color and the mahogany finished in a natural mahogany color with white holly inlays and a black border. Traditional and simple, this table is sure to fit into any gameroom’s current decor. Additionally, all finishes are hand rubbed, making this piece of furniture very easy to keep clean and dust-free.
As with all Brunswick billiard tables, the Madison carom table is engineered with the utmost precision and is meticulously manufactured.
You can be certain that all joints and mitres are secure and accurate and all corners and edges are smooth and true. The rails of the Madison carom table are built of compound construction, which means various kinds of hardwoods are used to protect against climatic changes.
The corners are solid rosewood, and the top of the rails are decorated with ivory diamond-shaped sights and stamped with the metal ‘Brunswick’ nameplate. The rails are fitted with Brunswick’s famous Monarch cushions, which promise accurate rebounds with every shot. You can be sure that balls roll smoothly on this carom table, as the 3 piece Vermont slate is perfectly matched to ensure an even, ridge-free playing surface.
If carom is your game, look no further than the antique Brunswick-Balke-Collender Madison! The quality of Brunswick billiard tables cannot be surpassed, and the Madison is no exception. This table is sure to last you for many, many years to come.
