Uniquely designed and handsomely configured, the Brunswick-Balke-Collender Pfister pool table is truly one of a kind! This 8′ billiard table features gracefully sweeping lines and attractive curves, making it appeal to even those with the most refined taste when it comes to artistic excellence and mechanical merit. Finished in an antique mahogany, the Pfister sports some very unique legs which are split into two feet at a ninety degree angle at the bottom – a feature that has received much admiration from both billiard and design enthusiasts.
The Brunswick Pfister’s framework has a very sturdy and heavy construction, but that does not mean it cannot be disassembled for ease of transportation, as it is built in sections. The slate bed consists of 3 piece 1″ thick quality Vermont slate, which is joined by means of brass dowels and sockets. You can be absolutely certain that no screw holes will be visible on the playing surface of this table.
Additionally, the cushion rails of the Pfister billiard table are securely attached to the slate bed by means of what is known as a ‘blind cushion rail’. This is when the bolts which hold the cushion rails to the slate bed are concealed by woodwork, giving more weight to the cushion rail and also eliminating the need for bolt caps, which are often deemed as ‘cheap’ looking. The rails are covered by the patented and renowned Monarch cushions, which are famous for their ultra precise rebound angles and are used by professional pool players in both the United States and throughout Europe. The rails themselves are topped with veneered rosewood as opposed to a varnish finish, which often loses its color and can be easily blemished and marred.
Overall, the Brunswick-Balke-Collender Pfister pool table showcases the superior quality and design of Brunswick billiard tables. Although many pool table manufacturers have attempted to imitate several of Brunswick’s designs, none have come close to attaining their unsurpassed quality of construction, resulting in the unmatched resiliency and longevity of Brunswick tables.
