“Cavagnole!” This is something we might hear today if this 18th-century game still being played. Cavagnole, a pre-modern version of bingo, was much more than just an ordinary board game—its aesthetic appeal reflected the culture, beauty, and art forms revered in the height of its popularity.

As an extremely simple yet intricately-built set piece, this second panel of a Cavagnole set is decorated with a wide variety of figures from throughout the world during that time. Images of angels, flowers, beautiful women, and additional subjects help bring life to this game piece.
