This Wentworth wooden puzzle is cut in the traditional Victorian style in which every piece is a different shape and selected pieces are cut in shapes that may reflect the image. These 'whimsies' were so called because Victorian puzzle cutters included the shapes 'on a whim' and The Wentworth Wooden Jigsaw Company has revived this old tradition.

These collectors puzzles are cut in patterns that challenge, intrigue, frustrate and confuse - not least because the corners are frequently bisected and straight pieces appear in the middle of the puzzle!

Approximately 250 wooden pieces in the Scottish Cut.
