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.
