This is The Kent Champion Cue.  It has an ebony butt hand-spliced onto an greenheart shaft.

The cue was made by H.J. Davis & Co., a London billiards firm that was established in 1896.  The cue was probably made before 1914.

Some people mistakenly believe that H.J. Davis & Co was associated with the great Joe Davis or that the Kent Champion Cue is an early Joe Davis Cue.  This is incorrect.

circa 1890-1900
