Vintage Wooden TUCK'S Zag-Zaw De Luxe Jigsaw Puzzle Hamlet 1,500 Pieces COMPLETE. A vintage wooden jigsaw made by Raphael Tuck & Sons The image is'The Famous Poisoning/Play Scene from Hamlet' by the artist A. It is number 545 in the series, has 1,500 pieces and measures 38 inches x 26 inches.
This is one of the'De Luxe' puzzles and think it may be one of the largest puzzle Tuck's produced. The puzzle is a push fit cut with a selection of'whimsies' hidden amongst the pieces, including flowers, swords, mice, keys, bones and hearts! This is a very large and challenging puzzle; it took me well over 3 days to complete! All of the pieces are clean and unbroken which is amazing for an item that is nearing 100 years old! It looks as if the puzzle has rarely been completed.There is some minor paper loss to the image, I have taken some pictures to show some examples of this. I was contemplating re-touching the pieces but decided against it and have left it in un-restored condition so the new owner can decide what they want to do with it. The box is in great condition with the paper label still intact. It has one torn lid edge and some'shelf wear' but apart from that it's solid. I have also taken a brief video of the jigsaw so you can get an idea of the scale and see it in full technicolor! It is a fantastic puzzle and would be the perfect centrepiece to someones collection. Due to the price I would be happy to deliver the jigsaw within 80 miles of Toddington, Bedfordshire for the cost of petrol. If you would like any more information please get in touch. I also have plenty more pictures, just let me know and I will send them over. Youre welcome to collect if local.
