As with all Par puzzles, this one comes with no guide picture, and a deliberately misleading title,'In luck'. I have no idea where the print comes from, but it's a funny and charming depiction of a travelling ladybird, finding paradise in a raindrop on a leaf. The puzzle has 750 beautiful 5-ply pieces, and a highly irregular edge, which adds greatly to the challenge of completing this puzzle.

The (laughable) Par time for completing the puzzle is 5 hours 20 minutes. I'm not an expert on dating Par puzzles, but I believe from the labels that it was cut by John Henriques between 1930 and 1950. I have had two missing pieces replaced.

One original piece is quite badly chewed, and 2 others have slight tooth marks. A few other pieces have had tiny tips replaced, and left attached to adjacent pieces to protect the repairs. Please see the close-up photo of the repairs. The puzzle is now again in lovely vintage condition. The box is sound but scuffed and grubby.

Par puzzles are considered the Rolls Royce of hand-cut American puzzles. Please see my other items for a wooden puzzle hand-cut in the UK.
