This is another of our very special chromolithographs from the 1890's Childe's Seed catalogs. (A chromolithograph was a special print process used from about the
mid 1800's to the early 1920's where each color was laid with a run of the press. As a result, the colors are very bright and
well preserved.) It's called Otahiete Orange. We put a special irregular border on the print and cut it using our new "curls and knobs" style.
That style has some pattern sequences that blend nicely with the edges of the blossoms to keep you guessing where the edges are.
The example puzzle shown was a special order. The custom said "lots of cats, and some flowers and fruits". This is what we came up with. When you
order a puzzle from us, you can specify special figural pieces, a cutting style and more. Check out our
Customizing your Puzzle page.
The puzzle shown is made from top, custom-grade 1/4 inch mahogany
We hand finish all our
puzzles with oil and shellac so that they feel
great and are as nice to look at from the back as
from the front.
