High Victorian style was popular during the later part of the 19th century. This architectural style appeared in buildings, artwork, and pool tables. This design was characterized by an eclectic assortment of patterns, textures, and colors, and even some Gothic elements.
In the High Victorian Era, the J.M. Brunswick & Balke Company designed and created their ‘Novelty’ series of pool tables. Notable features of this series include having the legs of the table are turned at a 45* angle to the cabinet. This draws the discriminating viewer’s eyes to the cabinet where the corners are scooped out, creating a pointed arch – a classic Gothic design element.
The OG Novelty, noted for its plainness, was designed for those who wanted a bit of the glory of the billiard fervor that was prevalent at the time, but who also wanted less affectation.
