A challenging and entertaining jigsaw

This WENTWORTH wooden puzzle is a premium quality traditional gift. It is cut in the classic traditional Victorian style, in which every piece is cut in shapes that may reflect the image. These "whimsies" were so called because Victorian puzzle cutters included theshapes 'on a whim', and The Wentworth Wooden Jigsaw Company has revived this old tradition.

 

Using the state-of-the-art, computer-driven laser technology, 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 strait-sided pieces appear in the middle of the puzzle

!From a custom-made puzzle for an English stately home, to a stock puzzle from this Fine Art Collection, every Wentworth puzzle offers a stylish, stunningly crafted gift that will last a lifetime and provide pleasure to generations!

 

Wychmere Harbor Mini Puzzle

Puzzle Cut:    Marine Cut

Location:    Harwichport, Cape Cod, MA

Size:    6.75" x 4.75"

Description:    Most of us who've enjoyed the sight of Harwichport's appealing little harbor have seldom gone a-sailing; even fewer have sailed from here, but everything about the scene, from the ever-changing movements of the boats to the glimpse of the ocean beyond, speaks to the romantic in us. 

 

Because of its almost perfect circle, a retired sea captain, after the Civil War, created a ½ mile race track around a pond. After damage from several storms to the southern point close to shore, the town fathers decided to create a harbor and move the race track. So, a channel was cut, and the pond dredged. "Wychmere" comes from a cottage colony established in Harwich in the 1880's.

Pieces:    75-80
