Art Nouveau was the height of fashion at the end of the 19th Century. These iconic posters, designed to appeal as advertisements have lost none of their attraction. This jigsaw makes a timeless gift for art lovers and has plenty of detail to keep the puzzler interested. It's the prefect puzzle for anybody who loves Art Nouveau or vintage advertising. The use of rich colors makes it a visual treat.
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 cotton draw-string bag within a premium quality lidded box, Wentworth puzzles offer a stylish, stunningly crafted gift which will last a life time, providing pleasure to generations.
