ALBERT PICK COMPANY
Maker of pool cues in the 1920s and 1930s in Chicago, Illinois.
After the turn of the century, in the early 1900s, pool was extremely popular in the U.S. Brunswick cues dominated the market. Usually rosewood or ebony was used, and cues either had pointed or butterfly splices in a variety of configurations. The Albert Pick Company in Chicago introduced a very unique line of cues in the 1920s. Colored woods were used, and patented checkered rings and box rings were featured. At the time they were revolutionary, and became very popular in Chicago and the midwest. One-piece and two-piece cues were available, all identifiable by the circular "Albert Pick Co." decal at the bottoms. Some later cues, circa 1929, did not have labels.
Today these cues are sought after by serious collectors. One can see the influence they had on the cues to follow. Many of the rings and designs can be found in similar variations on the custom cues of today. Totally original examples with the original oil or French polish finishes are extremely rare and are quickly appreciating in value.
