The Alec Brown Gold Cup Cue, made by Peradon

Description:
This is a quite uncommon picture plate cue which celebrates Alec's victory in the daily mail's "gold cup" tournaments (of 1938 & 39). Alec brown is most famously known for having brought about a change in the rules of snooker, when he produced a 'fountain pen' sized cue during a match in 1938. This cue is ash shafted with a hand spliced ebony butt with classic green veneer - a nice player too!

The Claude Falkiner Facsimile Cue, made by Peradon

Description:
One of few designs of cues to celebrate the great Claude Falkiner, who was a fellow Yorkshireman indeed! The cue was warped and stained when I acquired it, so it has been sensitively restored by craftsman cues, who've done an excellent job. This is an ash cue with a plain hand spliced ebony butt.

The Horace Lindrum Picture Cue, made by Peradon

Description:
This is the younger version of the Horace Lindrum picture badge cue - less common than the cue which features a later picture of Horace. It's sad to note that in the past few years the commercial price of this cue, and machine spliced cues in general has fallen - make no mistake, a machine spliced cue can be every bit as good to play with as a hand spliced cue! This cue has a maple shaft with machine spliced ebony butt with maple veneer & rosewood front splice.

Description:
The Joe Davis 101 break cue commemorates his new best made in nov 1930. The 101 break cue is particularly rare as joe went on to beat this only a month later in dec 1930.

Being very rare indeed I had the cue lengthened and restored by craftsman cues, the cue has an aged ash shaft with hand spliced ebony butt and maple facing splice.
