most expensive pool tables

1. Queen Victoria’s Jubilee Billiard Pool Table – $1.6 Million

The most expensive pool table in the world also happens to be one of the most historical pool tables. This unique ‘Black walnut’ table and corresponding freestanding Billiards cabinet by Orme and Sons Ltd were commissioned for Queen Victoria’s Jubilee Exhibition back in 1887. Each side of the table is intricately hand-carved, referencing the cultural variety and industrial growth that occurred during the fifty years of her reign.

The table’s cushion friezes are adorned with ribbons which includes quotes from Tennyson, Byron, Shakespeare, and Scott entangled with more than fifty species of wild flowers and native British birds. Underneath these quotes are two long and six short panels that display numerous countries through flora, fauna, allegory, and industry.

Between these panels, above each of the table’s legs, there are portraits of William of Normandy, Henry I, Henry II, John, Henry III, Edward I, Edward II, Edward III, Edward IV, Elizabeth of York, James I and Charles I. Every aspect of Queen Victoria’s Jubilee Pool Table is a tribute to her historic reign.

The table is estimated to be worth a staggering $1.6 million and was available for purchase back in 2009. However, today, little is known about who the lucky owner of the most expensive pool table in the world is.


2. The ‘History of Australia’ Billiard Pool Table – $750,000

The second most expensive pool table in existence is the award-winning, hand-carved masterpiece known as the ‘History of Australia’ Billiard Table. Circa 1880, this table was carved from Australian blackwood by master carver George Billyeald for the Benjamin Hulbert furniture firm in Sydney, along with the accompanying scoreboard.

The pool table is acknowledged as the most exceptional example of Australian woodcarving ever created. It features ten extensive panels, which outline the history of the country in the form of breathtaking carvings. Depictions include native Aborigines in the bush, an abundant of native flora and fauna, and the Prince of Wales plumes. Every single inch of the table’s design serves as a tribute to Australia.

After its creation, the ‘History of Australia’ Billiard table was featured in a number of international exhibitions, such as the Colonial and Indian Exhibition in London in 1886. Following this exhibition, the table was sent on loan to Buckingham Palace where it was appreciated by Queen Victoria and used by the Prince of Wales.

Then, the table made a tour around the world before, ultimately, ending up in the M.S. Rau Antiques’ collection. The table is estimated to cost $750,000 and was available for purchase via M.S.
