Collecting: Selection of Old Cues

I have included this illustration to show the differences between, machine spliced cues and hand spliced cues, along with the variety of inlays, veneers and badges that cues used to carry.

These cues used to belong to an acquaintance of mine, Robert Osborne, I believe that most of them have been sold since the photograph was taken.

  2. Joe Davis club cue, machine spliced
  3. Horace Lindrum Picture badged cue
  4. Sidney Lee Snooker cue
