  • Riley Aristocrat vs Renaissance

    Hi folks,

    Can somebody tell me the main differences between these two models from Riley?

    thanks!

    The Renaissance is or was an imported model as far as I am aware. The Aristocrat is made in UK. However at some point in the past, for a time, they did farm out production of the Aristocrat to the Far East, but that is not the case now. Hence the vast difference in price and quality. Note that the advert for the Renaissance doesn`t state the origin of the slate as Italian. These are imported tables.

      Would somebody here be able to recognize that type of feet?
      According to the person I am in contact with, it's from a Riley table, but she's unable to tell if it's an Aristo, a Rennaissance or God knows what..

      Any help ?

          hmm well spotted sir! After a quick search on BCE tables, it looks like it's a BCE Westbury

            I was put off by purchasing Riley because no bugger seems to know who and where thay are made. Riley was purchased by BCE, I know that much. At least with my Star I knew it was genuine and straight from Xing Pai..
