Pool table dream an auction reality
Author: Richard Brewster | Posted: 24th September, 2013
Have you ever dreamed about having your own pool table but not had enough space to accommodate it?
Well this week the perfect solution has arrived at Abbeys Auctions – a magnificent slate based 8’x 4’ pool table that doubles as a dining table – part of the company’s weekly sale of more than 600 lots available for live or online bidding from 9am Friday at 480-482A Station Street, Box Hill.
The suite comes with cues, balls and accessories for the full poolroom experience. When not in use, the pool table has 10 chairs and a sliding mahogany top that creates the perfect formal dining room.
The table features high quality construction with special pistons in the legs to create that perfect level playing surface, but unfortunately has a couple of small blemishes on the top and felt that may need repair. The whole set is estimated to sell for $400 to $600.
Several other coordinating furniture pieces from the same estate will be auctioned including an impressive mahogany sideboard, sets of mahogany drawers and an ornate secretaire desk.
To complete the entertainment theme, Abbeys Auctions also is offering a Thurmer piano in beautiful condition estimated at $500 to $800.
Smaller pianos continue to be popular as they are versatile enough to fit into both modern and traditional environments, even where there is limited space.
A full catalogue will be online on Wednesday evening.
