Christmas Tree II (1605)

Beautifully cut, 233 piece non-interlocking plywood jigsaw puzzle, part of the stock of the East Anglian Jig-Saw Club, cut by Dolly McDougall in 1959. The artwork is an unsigned depiction of the "earliest authentic record" of a decorated Christmas tree, from Strasbourg in 1605. When I first completed the puzzle, I was regarding the pink frame outline as the outer edge, but then began to realise just how many extra pieces there were! Nonetheless, I did find it easiest to finish the inner area before tackling the outer frame. Very clever, very challenging and great fun!
The plywood board used looks to have been a panel from a wood chest, manufactured in Finland, as seen in the image of the reverse side.
