Under the Table
- Jared Paul Stern
If you missed your shot at the Godfather of Soul's shades, don't despair—there's still time to get your paws on Tom Jones' billiard table.
On Thursday, London's The Fame Bureau is auctioning off the table owned and used by the Welsh pop star in the '60s and '70s. Made by Burroughes & Watts of London c. 1880, the mahogany masterpiece made a cameo on the record sleeve of Jones' 1971 LP *She's A Lady* and is expected to fetch $100,000 - $150,000. Also on offer: Jimi Hendrix's first burnt guitar, a 1967 Fender Stratocaster, which could go for as much as $1 million; the Bechstein Grand piano used by the Beatles to record *Hey Jude* in 1968, est. $600,000 - $800,000, and a slew of other less expensive but equally entrancing lots.
