Joe Davis (OBE) Personal Billiard Table

Joe Davis’ (OBE) Personal Billiard table

c 1907 made from Mahogany with Satinwood Inlay by Thurston & co. for the undefeated World Snooker and Billiard Champion Joe Davis OBE. 

Joe Davis won his first Snooker World championship in 1927, was undefeated world champion from 1927 – 1947, and was awarded the OBE in 1963. He helped organise the first World Championships and was the first player to achieve an officially recognised break of 100 and also of 147. He is the player, still to this day, to have won the most individual world championship titles.

Davis won the first 15 World Championships before retiring undefeated after his 1946 triumph over Horace Lindrum, a match Davis won 78-67 over a period of 16 days Davis compiled 687 centuries in his career, including breaks of 133 and 136 against Lindrum, the former taking just seven minutes and 15 seconds. He has been cited as an inspiration by Ronnie O’Sullivan & Steve Davis, and was a role model for Alex Higgins, living long enough to see Higgins crowned as World Champion.

His table was made by Thurston & Co. in Cheyne Walk, Chelsea, London. Thurston are the world’s oldest Billiard table makers, and their Leicester Square Hall was the centre of World Snooker in the early 20th century, and the scene of many of Joe Davis’s victories. This was Joe Davis’s personal Billiard table, is 100% original, has the maker’s full provenance, and includes the original matching Scoreboard / cocktail cabinet. Both are on display in our showroom and available for almost immediate delivery. The table requires only minor renovation, including new rubbers and a new cloth.

The slate is 5-piece, nominally 12ft x 6ft overall and the table’s outside dimensions are approx: 3.81m x 1.98m. Made from figured Mahogany & inlaid in Sheraton style,

Optionally, we can also offer an antique Brass light and shades of exactly the same period & style.
