Description:
King of the billiards/pool toy genre, even though he's actually playing a form of tabletop bagatelle. This hand-painted, original-condition mechanical marvel is usually referred to as a billiards or pool player toy due to the cue action, balls and "pocket" holes. His fancy mustachioed countenance, formal grey-suit-with-red-piping attire, and longest table-and-base, make this cue shooting toy stand out above all other similar cue toys. As he strokes the ball on ist way to find a number- value "pocket," another ball is brought back to the table surface shooting position by an archimedean screw, ball-return channel and chute. On and on he pockets balls until it's time to rewind the smooth clockwork mechanism.
