Pool Table Reviews: Marquette 4’x8′ Ltd. Edition Brunswick Pool Table


The rich history of the Brunswick name began with an Ohio carriage builder’s passion for woodworking. While he was consistently working to enhance his reputation as a carriage builder, little did Brunswick know back then that his life was going to take a different turn and that his name would become the trademark of the best pool table manufacturing company in the world. The ambition, dedication and passion are still the basic principles that guide Brunswick’s practices today, in spite of the fact that the world has changed significantly since the times of the founder.

If you want to bring back a slice of that romantic era into your home, then Brunswick has a surprise for you: the Marquette limited edition collection. These amazing Brunswick pool tables are breathtaking replica of one of the very first models produced a few years before the first gunfire announced the beginning of World War I. Even though it is a reproduction of the very first models designed, the limited edition Marquette is a masterpiece especially designed to celebrate 160 years since the Brunswick Company was founded.

However, since it is particularly created as an anniversary table, the Marquette edition 8 foot pool table is limited and only a few people – perhaps those who are truly passionate about the game of pool and its history – will have the pleasure to enjoy the ultimate pool playing experience on one of these pieces. Let’s summarize the amazing features this antique pool table replica comes with.
