  • Old Thurston's Bagatelle table - HELP

    Hi Everybody.
    I would be very grateful if anyone could give me any information or opinions about an old Thurston's free standing Bagatelle table I have purchased recently.
    I contacted Thurston's and they say the serial number 661, which is stamped into the table, is early 1800's. However, there is a very worn stenciled 'Thurston's of Liverpool' badge which seems to depict a gold medal. I understand that Thurston's were awarded a gold medal in 1851.
    There is also what I take to be the craftsman's name stamped onto three of the legs; R.W Hacker.
    I would really like to know more about this before I being its restoration.
    There are some photos:
    Many thanks.
