Collage of scenes from 16 Shakespearean plays surrounding a pictorial map of Stratford-Upon-Avon where Shakespeare lived, Shakespeare's family coat of arms in the upper right and the Town's coat of arms in the upper left. Also includes a picture of the Bard himself. Made by Par company circa 1955. Plywood, interlocking, cut partially along color lines with 23 figure pieces including 2 sea horses and "RHE" in upper right corner, initials of Ruth Ellsworth, Worcester, MA, the original owner, Irregular edges, unknown artist. An entire section of 6 pieces was missing in As You Like It. Melinda Shebell did a brilliant job of recreating the artwork using Photoshop and replacing the section without any guide picture to go by. Subsequently, Anne Williams sent us a picture of another Par with the same scene (which had been sent to her) which shows the 2 figures on the left playing the mandolin and not partially obscured by bushes. Melinda has volunteered to recreate the artwork and section again from said picture but I have urged her not to as the current replaced section looks terrific, much better than I could do with water colored pencils. All part of the puzzle's "provenance". A great Bard, a great puzzle, a great story! And many thanks to Melinda. Map designer is Kerry Lee (1948).
