Antique Brunswick Billiard Butterfly Splice Pool Cue

Antique Brunswick Butterfly Splice 2 piece pool cue from the 1930's. This great find sat in the case you see for many years untouched with the rosin bag you see.

The butt measures 28 3/4" without the bumper and is very thick in the grip end. Marked 16oz between the butterfly inlays as seen in the photos.

There is the chip to the butt end as seen in the photos, other than that, I do not see any other impacts. The finish on this is amazing and untouched original. The shaft has a slight curve to it and some staining or discoloration to the finish half way down, I'd hit fine with it. One very amazing cue in very amazing condition. No separation of the butterfly inlays. Very Bright red. Cues like this belong in billiard museums. This is an antique cue so it's Sold, AS-IS, ... read more
