The Cocotte / Pajarita in a Boat
This page attempts to record what is known about the origin and history of the Cocotte / Pajarita in a Boat design. Please contact me if you know any of this information is incorrect or if you have any other information that should be added. Thank you.


As far as I know this design first appears, and only appears, in 'Manuel Complet des Jeux de Société' by Elisabeth Celnart, which was published by La Librairie Encyclopedique de Roret in Paris in 1827, as a derivative design of the Cocotte / Pajarita made by folding the legs forwards towards the head.
