This is an exquisite laser-cut wooden puzzle that will delight puzzlers of any age. The puzzle is so totally absorbing that it is the perfect antidote to the stresses and strains of every day living. The puzzle is presented in a cotton draw-string bag within a premium quality lidded box.
It is a Classic ‘Whimsy’ puzzle.
These "whimsies" were so called because Victorian puzzle cutters included the shapes on a whim to reflect the theme of the image. The Wentworth Wooden Jigsaw Company has now revived this tradition.
A collectible heirloom, the pieces are cut in patterns that challenge, intrigue, frustrate and confuse - not the least because the corners are frequently bisected and straight-sided pieces appear in the middle of the puzzle. State-of-art, computer driven laser technology beautifully creates each piece.
Wentworth puzzles offer a stylish, stunningly crafted gift which will last a life time, providing pleasure to generations. In fact, the puzzle pieces are made of a wooden composite that has been certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) to ensure the product lasts.
Made in Great Britain.
WARNING: This is an adult puzzle containing small pieces which may be a choking hazard for children under three (3) years.
A little background:
According to Emily Post's (1873–1960) book entitled Etiquette, the guest no one invites a second time is the one who runs a car to its detriment, and a horse to a lather; who leaves a borrowed tennis racquet out in the rain; who “dog ears” the books, leaves a cigarette on the edge of a table and burns a trench in its edge, who uses towels for boot rags, who stands a wet glass on polished wood, who tracks muddy shoes into the house, and leaves his room looking as though it had been through a cyclone.
You never want to be that Guest from Hell.
It is better to the Considerate Guest who shows neither annoyance nor disappointment—no matter what happens. Before you can hope to become even a passable guest, let alone a perfect one, you must learn as it were not to notice if hot soup is poured down your back; if you neither understand nor care for dogs or children, and both insist on climbing all over you, you must seemingly like it; and you must with the very best dissimulation at your command, appear to find your host’s food delicious even if especially distasteful to your palate. A perfect guest will grin and bear it. A perfect guest will thank the host and even send a thank you gift after the visit.
This puzzle is just the thing to make your host smile even if you weren't the guest that would never be invited again.
