Pastime puzzle made in the 1920's by Parker Brothers; 90 figure pieces; color line cutting. Act II of "Carmen" by Georges Bizet, with (we think) Carmen dancing for Escamillo while Frasquita and Mercedes look on and a companion of Escamillo plays the guitar. Artist's liberty here as Carmen doesn't ever really dance for Escamillo. He arrives, sings the toreador aria, and leaves after making eye contact with Carmen. She saves her dancing for Don Jose later in the Act. Again, the artist is unknown. Also displayed in this section is a puzzle cut by Isabel Ayer/Picture Puzzle Exchange, Boston, MA which is the mirror image of this one.
