My Collection:

The Joe Davis 109 Cue, made by Thurstons

Description:
The Joe Davis 109 cues would have been made shortly after he hit that break in Jan 1933. Like many of Joe's breaks in this era it did not last long as his best, beaten by his break of 114 in mar 1933. Only standing as his record for a mere two months, this is a rare cue with few examples seen made by either Thurston's or Peradon. This cue is ash shafted with hand spliced ebony butt and birdseye maple front splice - playable too! I finally picked up this cue some five months after I was first offered it, and turned it down.

The Boxwood Cue, made by Thurstons

Description:
One of the oldest cues in my collection, but sadly has been cut down significantly since the time it was made - I?m looking for a better example, so if you have one get in touch! Before the invention of the ferrule, cues would splinter at the time, and had to be chopped at the tip to return to solid wood. This cue has an ash shaft with hand spliced plain ebony butt featuring inlayed maker?s name.
