Purportedly, this puzzle was cut by Lowell J. Reed, Shelbourne, NH. Anne Williams dates Reed as making puzzles in the 1960's, yet the style of cutting is totally non-interlocking with extensive color line cutting, much like many of the puzzles made back in the 1909 era. The material is masonite, artist is Erik Horsman. Very difficult puzzle to assemble, but a very colorful Christmas scene when done. If you want to display the puzzle at Christmas time, start assembly early! Otherwise, you will be assembling it over the holidays.
