Old Style Mission B
Restored & Ready!

Not surprisingly, billiard table design paralleled the general trends in furniture of an era.
This is a Brunswick-Balke-Collender “Old Style Mission B” from the first decade of the 20th century. While there were several tables designs which show Mission or Arts and Crafts influence, Brunswick only made three models with the term “mission” as an actual part of the name:  The “Monterrey Mission”, the “St. Bernard Mission” and the “Old Style Mission B”.

 

One could easily argue that “The B” is the most quintessentially “mission” due to its proportions, repetitions of right angles, and seeming simplicity. ”Seeming simplicity” because there is a lot of visual detail going on with this table when you really look at it., even though it “feels” calm.
This table is also “pure” mission in its actual construction.  While the tenon on the side of the legs is decorative, the legs, themselves, are solid blocks of wood, not hollow boxes, and the corbels around the top of the deep cabinet are also solid – double doweled to the frame and the structural support of the slate.

This table is regulation nine foot size.
 It is seldom that we have a table restored, available and ready to go – but this one is! 
We normally only  work on tables that are “spoken for”, but we had a real desire to see this table finished and so worked on it over a few years time along with our orders.

I will also note here that we have a 6-leg version of the “Mission B” in our “available to restore” inventory as well as a 6-leg BBC “St. Bernard Mission”.
