As BG points out, that's the table lighting. I suspect that people were far more used to candles being close to them so bumping them would be less of an issue. The height of the candlesticks would actually help any uncomfortable heat situation as the candles grew shorter.

As a former museum docent, I've never seen such a table, but the thought put into it makes me think it may be authentic. If I were local I'd consider giving it a look, as it could easily be worth 3-5x the listed price if in good condition.
Interesting!! Who knew? (Not me!) :ROFL: :ROFLMAO:

If you bought that table, you'd have to go all in on the theme. Get some FDL mold chips. Chanman cloth with the French flag. Bounty chips with Marie Antoinette that say "Let them eat cake" and a guillotine. :LOL: :laugh:

Unfortunately, there's not enough felt to even play mahjong on it. There goes the Chinese market.

If one was Orthodox Jewish, would you need 7 candles in every corner?

Possibly an unpopular opinion but themed poker tables are just tacky, and don't get me started on the chips around the rail. :vomit:

I think if you were to really theme out a room, a themed poker table would be the only way to go. To add to the theme, you just need to add a guy selling beers for a buy-in apiece, serve hamburgers that taste like high-school cafeteria food, and the players in seats 6 and 7 have to get into a fistfight , landing one in the holding cell, located under the table.

It's not the worst table I've seen. I'm not in love with the chip lined race track as it would confuse me at the table but I think the table looks *okay* overall.
