DIVIDED SQUARE - PUZZLE. L’art à Parqueter. Die Kunst zu Parquetiren.
No imprint or date, but German, circa 1860. A pine box, with sliding lid, containing two hardwood squares comprised of different shaped and naturally coloured wood pieces, together with four colour-printed sheets of designs. The sliding lid bears a pictorial colour-printed title label. Box: 265 x 265 x 30 mm. Clean tear in one sheet, without loss; box a little worn, and label worn also; else a remarkably good example of an unusually large puzzle.
