Rollette is a well-made wooden bagatelle, most probably dating from the early or mid 1930s. It seems to use some of the "standard" festures found on Poosh games, such as the Doubler cup.

While I have no idea who made Rolette, my guess is that it was made to compete with Northwestern;s Poosh line of bagatelle. That was probably a mistake, since Poosh was an established brand, most people would buy a Poosh rather than a wannabe.

Both Lindstrom and Gotham had success selling bagatelle because their games weren't exactly like Poosh games. Too bad the manufacturer didn't put their name on the playfield somewhere. I have no idea if the numbers below the cups are supposed to be the odds of landing in that cup, or something else.
