I got this table from my best friends dad. he got it from a house his friend got after it had a fire. the table was in pretty bad shape so i worked on it for about a month it looks pretty good but it needs a few things. I was wondering if anyone could help me with finding out what year or years it was made and what the name of the table is? I'll try to post pics but if it doesn't work i can e-mail them. hotzy9999@aol.com my pics (http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/hotzy9999/album?.dir=/7933)

Looks like the BBC Defiance, made in the late 20s.

your pics are very dark as I see them but this may be of some help - if the diamonds on the rails are actually diamond shaped and not round then it was approx the late 20's that Brunswick went to the round markers
