I apologize if this has already been mentioned here, but the April 2002 issue of Cigar Aficionado (Don Johnson on the cover) has an article on the vintage pool table business. Most of it centers around interviews with the people at Blatt Billiards in NYC. The author approaches vintage tables from the rich man's parlor furniture/status symbol angle, rather than acknowledging them as functional sports equipment. Frankly, I thought the article was badly done, but you might find something in it of value to you.
