Description: 

Pastime puzzle made by Parker Brothers in 1912, plywood, semi-interlocking, cut along color lines with 76 figure pieces. From Act 4, Scene 5 in which Ophelia enters before Gertrude and Claudius with flowers in her hair, singing fragments of bawdy songs and appearing quite mad; the figure trying to console her is her brother, Laertes, who enters halfway through the scene; Hamlet is off in England. Terrific scene and colors, especially the red wall carpet with design in background. Artist: unknown.
