Country Life The 1900's, 1000pc Puzzle
This richly illustrated jigsaw captures a taste of country life in the 1900s, full of wonderful details and elements perfect for celebrating Easter this spring.
Across the country the style of the cottages differed because of local building needs, styles and materials. Most country people lived a simple life, with work coming from the big estates, which also provided much of the housing. The early 1900s was the last gasp of a seemingly idyllic rural life, which was to change forever over the next 40 years. But those turbulent days are far from view in this colourful, detailed and thoroughly delightful jigsaw, which portrays the very best of what country life had to offer.
It is a high quality 1000 piece cardboard jigsaw puzzle. The finished puzzle measures 70 x 50cm when complete. Suitable for ages 12 years and up. Made from strong premium grade cardboard, with linen finish print to minimise glare on puzzle image.

At Ravensburger we have over 100 years’ worth of experience in the manufacture of puzzles. Not only do we make the best selection of puzzles, we also pride ourselves on having the highest quality. Individual pieces are stamped with such precision that a quiet "click" can be heard when one piece is inserted in the other - this phenomenon is so unique that we have given it its own name ‘Softclick Technology.’ Our puzzles are made using unique punching templates and punching tools, which are hand-crafted with watchmaker precision to ensure the greatest possible accuracy and variety of the puzzle pieces.
