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
An unusual late Victorian Games Box in the form of a Snooker Table. The baized top opens to reveal storage for playing cards etc. Fine brass fitments around the top once held nets at the ball pockets sadly, they did not survive, but could be replaced with care and ingenuity. A rare little box! Circa 1900
