English Folding Bagatelle Game Table by Joseph Zanetti

Closely related to billiards and later pinball, the game of Bagatelle gained popularity from the late 1700s to the mid-1800s. Similar to a billiards table, Bagatelle tables typically feature a felt-lined surface but differ with a line of nine numbered arches at one end and playing balls at the other. The number nine arch rests at the center, while arches 1-8 appear randomly on either side. Bagatelle tables were often designed to play various games, usually involving shooting a ball with a cue through the archways to gain points associated with the numbers.

Crafted from rich Brazilian rosewood, this Bagatelle table is cleverly designed to fold over and become a typical desk or table while not in use. A green felt surface lines the interior, complete with ivory playing balls.

This table was crafted by Joseph Zanetti of Manchester, England, with the base made in the Netherlands.
