The dawn of the 20th century brought new designs and innovations in architecture, art and pool tables. Cubism, Prairie Style, and Modernism were evolving into the early signs of the Deco era. The Brunswick-Balke-Collender Company began creating pool tables with a massive body style and large elephant leg columns as legs. These Jumbo framework tables are known for their unusual strength, durability and, of course, design.
The Chateau is unique, with its jumbo legs turned 45 degrees, and it appealed to room keepers looking for a pool table design with clean, simple lines. Smooth, flat surfaces that did not collect dust and a finish that hid fingerprints were most in demand.
