Wooden jigsaw puzzle, expertly handcut with a scrollsaw, piece by piece, by Bella Puzzles.

ARTIST: Warwick Goble.

TITLE: From "Book of Fairy Poetry", 1920. "And the padding feet of many gnomes a-coming."

A "whimsy" is a puzzle piece shaped like a letter, object, animal, symbol, or human figure. (Also called "figurals", "silhouettes", or just "special pieces".) Think of the whimsy piece(s) as the prize in the box. Every Bella Puzzle also includes a signature Bella Puzzles chimp whimsy piece. This piece will be signed and dated. For every 30 pieces you order there will be one whimsy piece. You are welcome to make requests for specific whimsy shapes. That’s what makes wooden puzzles so special.

By default, your puzzle will not include any tricks. If you request trickery, any or all of the following tricks may appear in your puzzle. Color-line cutting, disguised edge pieces, fake edge pieces, split corners, split knobs and keys, drop-outs.

1/4 inch baltic birch.

The best way to store a wooden jigsaw puzzle is in its box. (Pets, liquids, sunlight, and small children do not go well with puzzles.) I will package your puzzle in a signature white or tangerine-colored sturdy puzzle box . The box includes a Bella Puzzles label but it will *not* have a picture of the completed puzzle. The absence of a guide image is one of the traditions of the earliest wooden puzzle makers.

Most of us grew up knowing only mass-produced, cheap, disposable, cardboard jigsaw puzzles. Wooden puzzles came first; they go back to the late 1700s, and were wildly popular in the U.S. during the Depression Era. Techniques for producing high-quality wooden puzzles haven’t changed much – and it’s possible to find vintage wooden puzzles for sale now and then – but a made-for-you Bella Puzzle is made the same way with the same techniques as those vintage wooden puzzles. A brand new Bella Puzzle is guaranteed to be complete, undamaged, mildew-free, and built to last for many more generations. Best of all, you can have it personalized with an image you like and whimsies of your choice. It is truly a luxury collectible.
