In Old Pompeii

Catalog Code: 
P- 788
Description: 

Our second copy of this most unusual round Pastime puzzle. Check description below re only listing, in 1928 Pastime sales catalogs. Yet, this puzzle was cut no earlier than the 1940's and possibly in the 1950's based upon its style (more traditional round knobs with interval knobs along color lines and not as much color line cutting as earlier Pastimes). Made by Pastime cutter #754, Parker Brothers, Salem, MA. Plywood, interlocking, cut along color lines with 42 figure pieces. Artist is Nabarri (1909).  I gave this puzzle to Melinda Shebell at the Sturbridge, MA Puzzle Parley in November 2008 as thanks for her major role in making and giving me the spectacular "Full of the Dickens" puzzle (see main page index).
