The Queen's Golden Jubilee

Limited edition* Wentworth wooden jigsaw made for the Daily Telegraph and sold to readers in 2002 to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. Presented in a purple velour faux-book box which contains the pieces in a velvet drawstring bag. Also included: a photograph of the image with artist and portrait details on the reverse.

*Number 111 of 500. The puzzle is numbered on a selected piece - in this case the 'rabbit' whimsy, on the picture provided within the box, and on the box itself.

510 x 360 mm

514 pieces, used and complete

100K PROJECT 2018

Puzzle number 53

 

Wow! What a find - I spotted it on eBay at a very low starting price, placed it in my Watch List and sat back to see how much it would sell for. To my amazement, nobody made a bid! Probably because no mention was made in the listing of the fact that it was a limited edition Wentworth wooden puzzle that originally sold for a smidgeon under £100. With my heart in my mouth I placed a cheeky bid for the starting price and actually won it. Result!!
