The Cue Collector - Stevenson 1016 Record Cue
This is a Stevenson 1016 Record Cue.  It has an ebony butt, with a mahogany front-splice.  The badge is ivory.

The badge commemorates a break of 1,106, which Harry Stevenson made against William Cook Junior in October 1912.

This break was not a world record because, at the time, George Gray was regularly making thousand breaks and, in 1911, had already made his 2,196 break.

However, the break was a personal record for Harry Stevenson - and remained his highest break.

The cue was made by Burroughes & Watts, after October 1912 and probably before the early 1920s.

Peradon & Co made a cue with a very similar badge which does not name the cue manufacturer.
circa 1910-1920
