Last night it was my pleasure to attend the opening party of Blatt Billiards 85th anniversary celebration. For the next two weeks Blatt Billiards will present the first of it's kind antique pool table, cue art and billiard memorabilia exhibition at The National Arts Club in Gramercy Park.
It was very interesting to walk through the museum and see all these collectibles about the history of billiards. I own a copy of Victor Stein's Billiard Encyclopedia, but to see his originals here was very exploratory.
I can advise everyone who lives in the New York area or has the loose cash to travel to come out here and check this rare collection out
Blatt Billiards has been manufacturer, engineer and supplier to some of the finest and most demanding furniture and design firms in the world. You can spend 60 000$ easily on a pooltable here and acquire a piece of art, which will last a lifetime
I had a lot of fun, met interesting people and saw some nice pieces of art. Congratulations to Blatt Billiards for 85 years of excellence !
