From the J. M. Brunswick and Balke Company catalog: The Monarch. This magnificent table embodies great solidity and massiveness of construction, with elegance and grace of design. It is very ornamental, the sides being of wood tastefully inlaid with various colored mosaics, and the legs being of iron finished in black and gold. A leveling screw in the center of the feet assists in establishing a perfect level over the entire surface of the table. It is unique in style and a departure from the established idea of a billiard table, and has met with much favor among those of acknowledged taste. Inlaid with California laurel, burl ash, French walnut, birds-eye maple, rosewood, ebony, mahogany and tulipwood. From the J. M. Brunswick and Balke Company illustrated price list, 1878: Construction patented September 7, 1875. Leveling Apparatus patented November 30, 1875.

Rail sites come in 2 standard options. A 7/16 inch Mother of Pearl Round or 1 ¼ inch Mother of Pearl Diamond. Custom options available.
All tables are manufactured using a solid 1 ¾ inch poplar core. The core is cross veneered using 1/16 inch poplar veneer on both sides. Once crossed the tables are re-veneered using a finished veneer. Each batch of veneers are numbered, hand selected and applied to the different parts of the table. Extra emphasis is placed on the quality of the wood and the exact location it will be applied to on the table. The cross veneering process is what gives each and every one of Blatt Billiard’s pool tables the longevity it needs to last a life time.
Custom veneers and inlay patterns are designed in collaboration with our clients. Each inlay has its own unique style and pattern. The woods used in our inlays can be customized to a specific client’s request or can be of the traditional nature from which they were originally designed and produced with. All of which is fully customizable.
