Somebody posted this question on a wakeboarding forum I read and I thought I would try to help out by asking around this forum.

Does anybody know what this table is or what the value might be?

It's an imported Fontainbleu Majesty pool table, circa 1920. Unfortunately it appears to be the left handed model, which only go for about $750 on ebay. However, the beaded G-String on the corner pocket could fetch $75,000 if it proves to be a genuine soiled Gypsy Rose Lee.

So, apparently you are saying it's a cheap furniture table and it's worth squat.

He was being funny. It could be one of many tables from a name brand to an import. It looks like a repro and not actually an old table. It is a common style. More information is needed to pin it down. If you look at this website you see how common that style is.

It looks identical to a friend of mine's Olhausen, I think the model is Innsbruck. The "rope" detail around the apron and the fluted legs are the same, has the same fringe pockets, etc. That one looks like it has cherry or mahogany rails and a maple finish everywhere else. If it's an Olhausen, there should be a small oval plaque (or laser engraving) set into the rail at one end with the name.

Decent table, but the pockets are too open for my tastes. Don't know about the price, depends on the dealer.
