Antique Brunswick "Sultana" circa 1910 SOLD
The Sultana is covered by design patent, which means that it is entirely original, in addition to which it is extremely attractive in appearance. It is furnished in both carom and with pockets and can, of course, be converted into a combination of both, either by means of pocket stops or our new convertible cushion rails. Design patent awarded May 7, 1912. Produced under various patents granted from 1892 to 1905.
