RICH CUE
Maker of pool cues from 1912 to 1982 in Freeport, New York.
The Rich Cue Company was founded in 1912 in Freeport, New York. The company made many thousands of cues over seven decades. Saul Rich operated the family business in its heyday with the assistance of two of his relatives who were both talented cuemakers in their own right: his uncle, Isadore Rutzisky, and cousin, Abe Rich. It remained a family business until Saul sold the company to Ike Algaze in 1970. Ike then ran the business until he sold it to Imperial Billiards in the mid-1970s. In 1982, Imperial ceased production of Rich cues. Most Rich cues are unmarked, but those with "Rich Q" under a clear plastic window are easy to identify. Some Rich cues from the 1960s bear a strong resemblance to those made by Doc Fry which were being made at the same time from similar materials such as marbled plastic rings in the butt sleeve. If you have a Rich cue that needs further identification or repair, contact Mark Kulungian at Pool Table Magic, listed in the Buy, Sell, Trade Index, or Rubino Cues, listed in the Trademark Index.
