Micro Wooden Puzzle
"Whimsies" shaped pieces
Artist: Claude Monet
Maker: Wentworth Wooden Jigsaw Company
Made in Great Britain
This Wentworth wooden puzzle is a premium quality traditional gift. It is cut in the classic Victorian style, in which every piece is a different shape and selected pieces are cut in shapes that may reflect the image. These "whimsies" were so called because Victorian puzzle cutters included the shapes on a whim, and the Wentworth Wooden Jigsaw Company has revived this tradition.
A collectible heirloom, the pieces are cut from Finnish birch ply 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. Presented in a premium quality lidded box, Wentworth puzzles offer a stylish, stunningly crafted gift which will last a life time, providing pleasure to generations.
