Billiard tables manufactured during the reign of England’s Queen Victoria are generally considered Victorian–although this is a very broad mix of styles sometimes mixing Rococo Revival, Renaissance Revival, Eastlake and Queen Anne.

Ornamentation of these tables is normally floral and/or geometric inlays of contrasting wood veneers. However, some tables reflect more simple use of veneered raised panels or plaques and light spoon-carving prominent with Eastlake and Renaissance Revival designs.

San Francisco manufacturers Jacob Strahle and August Jungblut leaned towards carved cabriole legs as their first choice; whereas, east coast manufactures chose octagon, or four-sided curved and round turned legs. Nearing the end of this period, some legs were cast in iron to resemble lions, devils, horses, dragons, elephants and maidenheads.
