Bagatelle

England. Circa 1850.


"Bagatelle" is defined as "something of little value or importance; a trifle." It is no coincidence that a tabletop game could be called bagatelle, as it is a leisure activity designed to pass time and hone skills of little use in normal society. This 19th century box has its original baize and the painted numbers in the wells are still intact, thus rendering it as worthy of play as it is of conversation.

H: 23", L: 43.5", D: 23"
