ANTIQUE MIRRORED ROWING DEXTERITY PUZZLE c.1910
A beautiful example of an early circular dexterity puzzle, probably made in Germany around 1910-1920. Please see similar puzzle 'Black Gentleman Smoking' in Puzzles section of catalogue. It measures 59mm in diameter and is in excellent condition for its age. The aim is to get the five small white balls into the five small holes, beginning on the shoulder of the man rowing (sculling?). Lovely lithographed depiction of rowers and the individual sculler with the boathouse in the background. On the reverse is a mostly unblemished mirror.
