Vintage AL CAPONE Gambling Table
This 10’ 6” x 4’6” gambling table was said to have been one that Al Capone gambled on in the 1920s. He was in Quincy many times during those years with other gangster figures. The building that he supposedly gambled at was at 126 N. 5thin Quincy and had three floors above the main floor. In the center was a sky light and garden room that extended all the way up to the roof – and it was originally surrounded by the apartments. The windows were covered at the roof so that no light would show from the outside when the “gamblers” were inside the building. There was a peep hole and buzzer at the top of the stairs on the second floor for access into the building. While there is no provenance on the table the story seems to pan out with the “evidence” of the table there and the alterations to the windows. This wonderful piece of history does have some staining and minor tears to the canvas material from age and storage. The wording appears to be hand painted. It is attached to heavy wainscot material. A neat piece for any gaming collector. This information was provided by local historians to Mr. Lueckenhoff when he ran his business there for years.
Two paintings from Mary Wiehe of Hannibal, Mo. and a painting from Susan Jean Parkman.
Many of these items will be on Day 1 and Day 2. Day 3 will encompass some of the same items and day 1 & 2 but with concrete statuary, novelty items, and the remainder of primitives and household items of Mr. Lueckenhoff’s Estate. Cornerstone Auction & Realty, Inc. would like to thank Steve Lueckenhoff Executor of the estate for trusting in our company to liquidate these once in a lifetime assets.
Special thanks to Mr. Scott Wheeler for the help, advice, and expertise in organizing the Estate.
