More product information : Mariners must collect an array of interesting artefacts from their travels across the world. What happens when they return home and need to store everything away? Perhaps things are gathered into a large chest, like the one shown on this puzzle. Tucked away in the chest are Skull and Crossbones biscuits, Captain Blood’s Seasick medicine, a fantastic Swiss Navy knife and a uniform bedecked with braid and badges. But it’s not just objects crammed into the wooden compartments … if you look closely there are eyes peering out at you, and little cottages which seem to be lived in. Welcome to the mystical world of The Mariner’s Chest! This image is by British artist Colin Thompson, who also illustrated the hugely popular puzzle, “The Bizarre Bookshop”. The puzzle comes in an in-box leaflet showing an additional puzzle picture for reference, together with an artist’s biography. Ravensburger adult puzzles are made using “Softclick Premium Puzzle” technology. This uses thicker and stronger board (manufactured especially for Ravensburger), and hand-crafted cutting tools resulting in strong, smooth and dust-free pieces with a superb fit.
