Egyptian Donkey Boy

Spectacular example of Figure=It=Out plywood puzzle, cut with all of the usual characteristics of this top-class manufacturer. The print carries the signature of the prolific British artist Percy Padden (1885-1965), whose fine work featured on many transport posters of the era. This painting was originally used by the Royal Mail Steam Packet Co., to promote their Mediterranean Autumn Cruises.
The box helps to date this puzzle example as being from the era c1932 onwards.
