The "H" signature piece in the lower right corner identifies the maker as Richard Hanchett of Springfield, MA from the 1930's. The puzzle was in a box from the Book-O’-The-Day Library in Springfield for whom Hanchett apparently cut puzzles. The most interesting of the 7 figure pieces is the scotty dog (right center) which I chewed as a very small boy in my first encounter with a jigsaw puzzle. I have deliberately left my teeth marks in this piece as part of the puzzle’s history and as a reminder that the teeth of little children and dogs can seriously damage puzzle pieces! According to Second Hand Mary from Maine, artist is Albin Hennings.
