NFS: 1900-1920 French Brunswick Wedge Billiard Cue
NFS: 1900-1920 French Brunswick Wedge Billiard Cue

Very rare early 1900's French Brunswick cue, restored by myself and Dave Barenbrugge. Cue is a reddish-brown wood with "Macassar ebony look" figuring, 'Made in France' stamped in the forearm, a Brunswick propellor logo also stamped on the forearm, ivory and ebony wedges, ivory buttplate and joint, and the original wood pin-in-shaft used by Dave to create a new shaft. Total length is about 58" with the shaft longer than normal. The cue was probably originally a carom cue, but is now quite playable. Every effort was made to restore this cue to what it was originally. See detailed description for restoration description.
