The Tres Riches Heures du Duc de Berry or simply the Tres Riches Heures, The Very Rich Hours of the Duke of Berry, is a very richly decorated Book of Hours (containing prayers to be said by the lay faithful at each of the canonical hours of the day) commissioned by Jean, Duc de Berry in about 1410.
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.
