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 Medalist features beautifully figured Butt walnut veneer with fancy Birds-Eye maple inlay. Rosewood rail tops make this one of the more spectacular tables of its time.
