Established way back in 1845, Brunswick is a legendary name in the world of billiards. The company was formed by one John Moses Brunswick, after seeing an exquisite billiards table made by the esteemed London manufacturer John Thurston.
Now a global brand rightly regarded for its iconic products and impeccable standards of craftsmanship, Brunswick has earned its place in America’s cultural history.
Like their era-defining Centennial pool table, listed under American Pool tables on this website, the Anniversary Centennial Rotating cue rack is one of the company’s best known designs. Created in the 1940’s to celebrate 100 years in business they are now increasingly hard to find, and this one is in fabulous condition after undergoing a full refurbishment at our workshop. It should also be noted that unlike most restored examples, this rack is completely original.
Sturdily constructed in cabinet woods and finished in rich rosewood, the Centennial is a wall mounted rack which rests on a ball-bearing base. It has an impressive capacity of 12 cues, far exceeding that of most racks. A bracket runs the full height of the rack, ensuring that this relatively heavy piece can be firmly attached to the wall.
At almost 65” tall it’s an imposing fixture but the stunning combination of chrome and rosewood makes it a classic of the period, and an elegant addition to any games room.
