When Barry became a cue maker 40 years ago it was to satisfy his intense curiosity of the old craft methods of cue manufacture. Having seen several vintage ornamental cues of the 1880’s and (in his opinion) the “rolls-royce” of the 1920’s the Willie Smith cue by Burroughs and Watts, he decided that the name “Vintage” admirably portrayed the excellence of cue that he was striving for and which has now become such a prized possession of so many people as reiterated on the cues n views/essential cue collection website. However advertising and shouting about how our cues are the best, has never been our forte preferring to let distinctive style and workmanship coupled with the use of quality materials and traditional tools speak for themselves in the understated way of the true artisan.
