That is a circa 1964 Rally Three Musketeers pinball machine. Pinball, or un flipper, was once all the rage in the cafés of France. The sad truth is that the age of pinball is coming to an end, according to this article.

Rally was a French company that manufactured interesting pinball machines in the 1960s. They made history in 1966 with the first digital scoring pinball machine. This one, their interpretation of the Three Musketeers, involved three voluptuous babes with swords.
