The Cue Collector - Mannock's Patent Cue
The Mannock's Patent Cue has a steamed pearwood shaft and a double butt. 

Four ebony machine-splices are attached to the pearwood shaft and four tulipwood handsplices are attached to the ebony.  The tulipwood has a snakewood frontsplice.  The badge is mother of pearl.

The cue shown in the photograph is a very early example of a Burroughes & Watts Mannock.  Although it is not apparent from the photograph, the words "Burroughes & Watts London" are stamped into the frontsplice, just below the badge.

The cue was probably made shortly after Burroughes & Watts purchased the Mannock patent around 1905.
