Marquette, 4 leg model
Technical Information: From page 30 of the 1912 Carom and Pocket Tables Catalogue of the Brunswick-Balke-Collender Company.
The Marquette is a recent production and a modification of the celebrated Pfister style which is thoroughly well known through being represented in a majority of the largest and finest billiard rooms of the United States. Inasmuch as many judges of pronounced ability favor designs in furniture which are absolutely devoid of carved ornamentations or mouldings, we have adopted this feature in the Marquette, which depends entirely on the highly polished plain surfaces, gracefully seeping lines and striking originality which puts it in a class by itself as one of the most artistic billiard tables ever produced. Design patent awarded May 7, 1912. Produced under various patents granted from 1892 to 1905. "Our tables are the best in the world for the reason that we have spared neither pains nor expense during the past seventy years to make them so. We excelled all previous attempts in the Marquette. It's one of our best."
Wood and Finish: Furnished handsomely figured Circassian Walnut, inlaid with black holly and pearl, in what is known as an egg shell gloss, which means that after being given the ordinary cabinet finish, it is hand rubbed to a dull polish which can be more easily kept clean than any other furniture finish.
Construction: The heavy o.g. framework of body is built up in what is technically known as compound construction. That is, various kinds of woods tongued and grooved together and double cross veneered on the outside, the outer veneer being handsomely figured Circassian Walnut. The legs are built up in the same way. This table is made in sections and can be taken apart for shipment. Double cross stretchers 1 1/4" thick x 9" wide countersunk into reinforcing blocks 8x9" and held in place by heavy iron frame bolt, making a rigid bridge construction. Long stretchers 1 3/4" thick x 5 1/2" . Head blocks and sides built into legs, tongued and grooved; compound construction reinforced by heavy corner blocks and secured to leg cap in frame body with iron bolt reinforced with hardwood dowels. The wood construction all of first quality, cabinet made and put together in a most thorough manner. All joints made close and secure and all mitres absolutely accurate. Glued up joints are tongued and grooved, strongly doweled and glued or screwed firmly together. All corners and edges made perfectly smooth and true.
Cushion Rails: 4" x 2" thick, compound construction built up of various kinds of hardwoods of different grain, double cross veneered. Plain solid corner blocks covering joint bolt heads. Cap rails 7/8" thick x 2 3/4" on upper surface and covered with rosewood 1/4" thick. Solid rosewood corners. Ivory diamond sights. Inlaid metal fancy name plate.
