Pastime puzzle made 1912 c. by Parker Brothers: 75 figures; extensive color line cutting. We believe this is the beginning of Act II of "The Barber of Seville" by Gioacchino Rossini, showing the library in Doctor Bartolo's house containing a harpsichord, with Dr. Bartolo and Don Basilio, a music teacher at the door, Count Almaviva wooing Rosina on the right, Figaro dancing with Fiorello, the Count's servant on the left. This exact scene, however, does not exist in the opera! Artist: unknown but he has taken liberty with the libretto.
