Date Description: Victorian Life Pool / Snooker Scoreboard


A 19th century mahogany Life Pool/Snooker scoreboard. Life pool, a gambling form of pocket billiards, was popular throughout the 19th century. Around 1875 it merged with another game, black pool, to form the new game of snooker. This attractive scoreboard has a square section number scorer and a central slate chalk board. The sliding panels reveal  mother of pearl marker buttons and sliding stars. The disks on the panels, originally of ivory, have been replaced with wooden copies. The scoreboard is in excellent condition, with an original surface that has been gently cleaned. Circa 1880
