Brunswick-Balke-Collender Billiards Back Breaker

Sep 23, 2011

Here is an antique Brunswick-Balke-Collender Royal billiard table that we were hired to move from an upstairs room to our client’s garage. This massive five by ten-foot pool table weighs in at an incredible 1600 pounds, almost as much as two standard size eight-foot pool tables. The Royal, circa 1928, features a three-piece slate bed. Each slate is 1.5 inches in thickness and weighs a whopping 400 pounds each. Coming downstairs with each slate was probably one of the most difficult tasks that my crew and I have ever done. We transported the table to my client’s home, also in Yorba Linda, luckily there were no stairs on the receiving end!
