kyzersoze...You can't tell how a table plays from a picture. You'd have to go SEE both tables. Neither one likely has a slate bed. The "Brunswick" table looks like an older homestyle table, that didn't sell for much more, when it was new, and likely has poor quality cushions. If it IS slate, it's likely very thin. Remember, most of the time, you get what you pay for.

Scott thank you for the reply. I already own a olhausen table i was just curious what kind of table these were. The brunswick is a 9 footer w\ 3 piece slate. Im not sure what size it is though. If anyone knows what table these are reply please?

thank you

I've worked on both tables shown I cannot remember the table names but I will find out Monday and reply.I can tell you they both have 1 inch slate and possibly dowed slate on the rail cap table.They look cheap now but the rail cap table was built in the early 60's the other model was more I'm not sure.It is a very common style brunswick used through 30's late 50's.You may have a good find on the modern table and play quality is based on wether the table was taken care of.All cushions go bad the good thing is they can be replaced.Plus the modern style is not a T-rail desighn table the rails mount the same way most are built this day in time.

It looks like an old Brunswick Monticello 1 or 2 from the late 60's early 70's.

thanks for the replies. How old is your mother-in-laws table? It plays pretty well? From your pics it looks to be the same table. Do you think this was one of brunswick "built in the u.s." tables?

The legs are different. It played well. The issues, if you want to call them that, are the laminated rails and the high black plastic pockets, and in my case, the scoring counters on the rails. My table reallly played like a commercial table.

I'm told the Sierras were built from 69-74. I assume that's a US built era.
