During the Victorian Era of the late 1800’s, pool table designs were becoming increasingly detailed and extravagant.   Discerning homeowners interested in owning their own table yearned for a design that was better suited for their needs.  In response, Brunswick-Balke-Collander Co. designed and created the Manhattan.  While it possesses some of the details of the higher end tables produced at that time, it had a more tasteful appeal.

Size: Pro 8'


  Original Catalog Description from 1896:

The Manhattan is well adapted for private residences. In rich simplicity of design, in correct lines and proportion, and in the true artistic harmony and elegance. The Manhattan is peculiarly desirable. The style of finish is a combination of quarter-sawed oak and handsome figured burl ash. The Manhattan can, however, be made up in other woods as desired.

This table is furnished as carom or pool or both combined, and is supplied with the finest of Vermont slated bed from our own quarries, genuine imported Simonis cloth, the incomparable Monarch quick cushions and a first class outfit of everything complete. The legs of our tables, besides being joined with wooden dowels, as is customary, are fastened with a long iron bolt passing through the entire length of the leg to the top of the head block, thus inspiring positive solidity not otherwise obtainable. This is a very important feature.

Tables are supplied with our adjustable carom plus with iron fastenings. The only perfect invention of its kind in the market.
