This puzzle is made from a reproduction of a
Mayflower Seed 1900 Chromolithograph. The
original print was made using multiple printing
passes, each with a different color ink. The
colors are preserved beautifully and the color
in the reproduction is vibrant.
For the example puzzle, we cut along the edge
of each flower to give the puzzle a very
irregular border. But on the larger size, we don't stop at that. We cut out all of the
interior background as well. That's over 30 dropouts . In this
puzzle, almost all of the pieces are edge pieces of a sort. However, it's not easy at all to
tell just how they fit together. This puzzle is one of our most beautiful and most difficult.
As with most of our puzzles, we've included a
number of figurals. Whenever possible we try to
make the figurals look interesting or to place
them in interesting areas of the picture. Here
you can see the almost symmetrically colored
yellow butterfly and the parrot that looks like a
All of our puzzles are made from custom grade 1/4 inch
plywoods of either Mahogany, Cherry or Walnut.
The cut puzzle is inspected and assembled and
finished the old-fashioned way with multiple
coats of hand-rubbed oil and shellac. The back
of the puzzle is as nice to look at as the
front. We then disassemble your puzzle and ship it to you in
a strong, sturdy white puzzle box that is hand labeled with the
title, date, piece count and size.
