Here is a historic and very collectable Patent.
In 1869, a British inventor named Montague Redgrave settled in America and manufactured bagatelle
tables out of his factory in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. In the 1870's when he was only 25 years old, Redgrave was granted this US Patent for his "Improvements in Bagatelle", which replaced the cue at the player's end of the table
with a coiled spring loaded plunger. The player shot balls up the inclined playfield using this
plunger, a device that remains in pinball to this day. Redgrave's innovations in game design are acknowledged
as the birth of pinball in its modern form. Redgrave continued to produce bagatelles up until 1927. You will see in the picture below the details of an old Redgrave game. All early models had the hoops over the score holes. Later models didn't have these.
