VERA MINIATURE IVORENE PUZZLE.

The unmistakable work of French puzzle cutters Vera in the 1920s. The image is pasted onto what looks like ivory but is actually "Ivorene", an artificial substitute about 2mm thick. Sadly missing its original box and 3 pieces - not that you really notice this. One photo here shows how tiny and complex the cutting of the pieces is. Completed picture measures 110 x 200 mm with about 300 pieces (amazing).
