ANTIQUE ALCOCK & CO TWO ROLLER MARKING BOARD
Price $1,750.00 inc GST
This fine Marking Board* was made at the Alcock Manufactory, Russell Street Melbourne, during the latter part of the 19th century. It is approximately 130 years old.
It is in exceptional condition, faced in fine original figured blackwood (fiddleback) veneers and featuring solid brass runners and pointers.
This Marking Board has not been restored for many years, consequently showing a genuine patina of age.
* We refer to such classic scoring devices as Marking Boards rather than Scoreboards because, for hundreds of years the person controlling a classic game of Billiards, including keeping the Score, was known as the “Marker”.
