Daughter of the Nile, A

81-piece semi-interlocking plywood jigsaw puzzle, with a box identification to indicate post 1922 manufacture.

The colourful print features an unsigned painting, thought to be an artistic representation of the American stage and silent film actress Mary Claire Fuller (1888-1973), female star of the 1915 short film of the same name. (see separate image). Colour line-cutting abounds and, whilst the puzzle title does not feature in the Company's post 1922 catalogue, it did feature as one of their available "Figure=It=Out" puzzles on page 5 of their earlier catalogue, in a 75-piece format. It seems feasible to believe that surplus pre 1922 prints were still being used as future puzzle artwork.
