Concord Bridge--April 19, 1775

Catalog Code: 
8- 805
Description: 

One of several prints of A. Lassell Riply paintings which my former employer, The Paul Revere Life Insurance Co., commissioned to celebrate the life and times of patriot Paul Revere. We asked Pagey Elliott to cut this one into a puzzle for us in 1993. Plywood, interlocking, cut partially along color lines with 34 figure pieces. Ms. Elliott is simply the finest designer and cutter of animal figure pieces in the world probably because she has studied, drawn and written books about the gaits of horses and dogs. The puzzle is displayed with the figure pieces removed to the side, a practice I don't normally follow but am making an exception here because of their superior quality. Please note in the lower center the figure of a dog "howling over his fallen master", one of the finest example of an appropriate figure piece. That was Ms. Elliott's genius (she is now deceased).
