Parker Brothers 355pc Jigsaw Dance of Spring Jigsaw Collage
I saw this delightful vintage jigsaw for sale on ebay from Canada. I knew it would sell for a high price (never mind the cost of postage etc), so I asked the seller if they would mind me uploading the images to the Traditional Wooden Jigsaws group on flickr. They kindly agreed so here is a collage of the images provided, which I have enhanced to the best of my ability. Not only is the image charming, but the colours are beautiful and it is full of great whimsies.
This is a Parker Bros Pastime puzzle, it has an original Pastime box with green print Parker Bros. Salem Mass. and Flatiron Bldg. NY. From the label inside the cover it dates 5-28-31, it says sawed by 98, polished by Rose and inspected by MC.

Pieces; Plywood, 355 pieces, excellent condition, there are figure pieces and color line cutting in this puzzle; a few knobs have been repaired, complete, it is an extraordinary puzzle and wonderful to do.
