These wonderful balls would make a great center piece on a coffee table and wonderful conversation pieces. It is commonly accepted that snooker originated in the later half of the 19th century. Billiards had been a popular activity amongst British Army officers stationed in India, and variations on the more traditional billiard games were devised.

Originally snooker balls were made of ivory. Although in the 1920's composite materials were available, they had a tendency to explode, as they contained some of the materials which comprise gunpowder. Not suprising they didn't catch on then. Modern competition snooker balls, on the basis that elephants don't play snooker and therefore shouldn't die for their production, are made from phenolic resin and must confirm to regulated standards. These were then replaced by the Aramith balls utilised in today's game. Aramith balls are ideally suited to the demands of the modern game, as they are more reactive to spin and power shots, thereby presenting greater opportunities for enhanced cue ball control.

There are three solid red balls and one red ball with white dot. There are also four solid white balls and a white ball with a red dot. Ten balls total. Vintage wear on all balls.
