The Joe Davis 101 Cue, made by Peradon

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. Usually I only collect 100% original cues, but when I acquired this cue it was only 52" in length and in very poor condition. 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.

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.
