The Casanova is a finely crafted table in the ”Classic Collection”. Inspired by early 20th century models, the Casanova is produced in solid Italian Walnut and has classically elegant lines. It has been inspired by the classic models found in the aristocratic European country houses and castles of the 18th century, the time when billiards was the favorite sport of the moneyed elite. Tables in the classic collection are ideally designed for Homes of Distinction and have become the choice of top interior designers across the world looking for products that are both aesthetically pleasing and built from the finest of materials.
Like all the offerings from Ursus Billiardi, the Casanova blends its aesthetic function with superior technical characteristics. This model has been inspired by the stylistic mores of 18th century Europe and is constructed entirely of National Walnut. To emphasize its sleek lines it is finished with a rich patina of black & white in contrasting tones. It is a striking contrast to the run-of-the-mill billiard table and gives a look richly suggestive of bygone eras. The “decorated” finish is literally painted by Italian artists who use techniques learned over the centuries. There are many steps and many man hours of artistic work to apply layer after layer of color, 24 karat gold or silver leaf, and the artistic removal of color. The end result is each piece becomes a unique work of art and object of fascination even to those who have no interest whatsoever in the game of billiards.
The “decorated” finish can be artistically applied in any color or combination of colors, with or without gold and silver leafing. The possibilities are endless. We can meet the most exacting demands of color and texture to coordinated with existing design schemes.
The play surface is constructed from the finest Italian slate precisely honed to 10,000th of centimeter and a full 5 cm (2″) thick not including wood framing.
Options: Each model in the Classic collection can have a particular finish. Standard finish is natural wood varnished. Finish options can be: decorated patina, hand scratched for a weathered look, Moka wax finish, lacquered in any color, upholstered in Velvet or in Leather. The complete handiwork of the manufacturing process allows intervention in each phase of the construction, modifying at pleasure each detail that is not involved in the dynamics of the game.
Each table comes with a matching wall or floor cue rack, wooden scorer, triangle, Belgium Super Pro aramith balls, four 2-piece cue sticks, the finest Gorina, Iwan Simonis or Hainsworth worsted fabric in your choice of fabulous colors.
