Cut for F.A.O. Schwarz, NYC by Joseph Straus, Brooklyn, NY with 16 simple figure pieces as Series #953. Lovely colors but artist signature difficult to read; Dutch puzzle enthusiast identifies signature as that of Alois Arnegger (1879 – 1967), an Austrian painter. In the first years of his career, he painted scenes from his Austrian origin, but from the 1920's his focus was more on Italian coasts, such as Naples, Capri or Sanremo. See JS-041. ID from a kindly Dutch puzzle enthusiast.
