from Jim McW--12 August 2001:
See MissouriPuzzle.com and click on the Lassen page, along the left side. I didn't see that title, but I did see "Island Romance".
Thanks, Jim McW

from Nancy Ballhagen--13 August 2001:
Hi BC, Seaside Romance is one of 3 of a series put out by Ceaco about 3 or 4 years ago, and they're no longer in print. They were a combo. of Lassen and Disney. Seaside Romance had Mickey and Minnie walking along the beach, If I remember right. There was another of Mickey as the "Sorcerer's Apprentice", and I think the 3rd one was the "Little Mermaid". You may be able to find them in internet auctions or on other secondary markets. Nancy

Hi, I would like to know if there is any way of getting a list of Charles Wysocki puzzles from the earlier ones done by colorforms and Parker Brothers?
Thanks, "WB"
***************
from Jim McW--14 August 2001:
See Q&A no. 156, on page 11 , where there is also a link to our page of Wysocki puzzle lists (not yet complete). We have listed some Wysocki titles from Colorforms that were offered recently on an online auction site:
"Timberline Jack"
"Pumpkin Hollow"
"Sunday Sailors"
"New England Sleigh Ride"
"Ice Cream & Hopscotch"
We have also heard of YANOMANTM(Japanese) and HEYETM(German) Wysocki puzzles, as well as PARKER BROS.TM and COLORFORMSTM puzzles.
Anyone have any other info?
Thanks, Jim McW

I am looking for a Ellis Wilson (artist)- Flower Vendor (title) Springbok puzzle. Do you have any information on how it can be obtained? Thank you. "AJS"
***************
from Jim McW--14 August 2001:
See an earlier, similar question, no. 112, on Page 8. Frances Main answered that question, "The Flower Vendor was run only once and not in large quantity. It is rare and hard to find."

[277]from "DW"-15 August 2001:
Hello, I have recently unburied a puzzle in my mom's house that I built when I was around 12 years old. The puzzle is Classic Cars and the number is PLZ9403. I am missing about 4 pcs. from the puzzle and would like to acquire them through Springbok if possible, or anyone you might know that would be willing to sell/give them to me. If you could provide any information regarding this, I would REALLY appreciate it. I am in the process of framing this puzzle because I love cars and this would be something that I would love to have forever. Thank you very much for your help. Take care. "DW"

from Jim McW--16 August 2001:
As you may see in question no. 267, someone "beat you to it". We were able to connect a buyer and a seller, who apparently had only one of these puzzles. Is there anyone else out there, who has "Classic Cars"? If so, let us know, and we may help get the two of you together. In the meantime, we will keep an eye out for it.
Thanks, Jim McW

[280]from "CCM8"-16 August 2001:
I recently picked up a puzzle, a starwars puzzle of R2-D2 and C-3PO from the movie's first release, judging from the date on the box. It also appears to have been a cereal box offer, since General Mills is on the box. The tabs are a little bent, but still decent. Any idea of a rough price range? Thanks, "CCM8"

from Jim McW--16 August 2001:
We would expect this to appeal especially to collectors of STAR WARSTM items. Its value would depend on its condition, completeness, and finding the right venue. It might be best to make some really sharp photos or scans of it and post it in an auction on an on-line site.
Thanks, Jim McW

[282]from "SA"-21 August 2001:
Dear sir,
I am in search of a picture puzzle I did as a child. It's a very exciting one, filled with the drama and romanticism of an old time adventure story. Essentially there are 4 participants. A North American Indian man and women in traditional dress, a dog, and a grizzly bear. The dog is on the right side, bristled and snarling. The female, startled/terrified is standing in a buckskin dress and moccasins with one arm raised in alarm, on the left. The man is bare chested/muscular and reaching for his bow and arrows, located in their canoe which is only partially shown in the foreground, both on the left and moving toward center. The forest, on either side, leading into the clearing, is thick and vibrant green. The grizzly is reared on hind legs, preparing for attack, mid center/mid back. The mountains in the background suggest late afternoon in their paleness of color. This picture story has a timeless nature and is frozen on the canvas of the artist as well as in my mind. I do not know the artist or manufacturer, or title, but in subject should be easier for you to find then myself, if you keep a picture archive by subject. (I have had no luck). Although I only want to give this to my sister as a 50th birthday present, I have at least 10 others I would love to present it to. If there is anything else I can do besides identify it, please let me know. I estimate that it was produced in the 1950's, and my mother bought it at a church auction in Barton, Vermont. Can you help me? If you cannot, perhaps you could make some helpful suggestions.
Sincerely, "SA"

One of the most knowledgeable experts on jigsaw puzzles was able to answer your question. He says, "The puzzle is titled "Hasty Retreat" and is by Walter Haskell Hinton. It has been seen on two puzzles, both of which are 375-Piece Perfect Picture Puzzles. Box Codes are PERF-LG030 and PERF-LG021#306.
Thanks for the great question and thanks to the expert for the answer, Jim McW

WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE TO OBTAIN A DUPLICATE OF THE ROSALIE HOUSE (PAINTED LADY SERIES) PUZZLE? THE ONE I HAVE IS MISSING ONE PIECE, AND I HAVE AN AUNT ROSALIE I'D LIKE TO GIVE ONE TO.
THANK YOU. "TF"
***************
from Jim McW--22 August 2001:
Question 254 was about the "Painted Ladies" series, and, to be honest, we knew nothing about it. We have located one of these puzzles since then, which we will be posting on our "Items for Sale" page, under KODACOLOR TM. Unfortunately, it is not "The Rosalie".

from Nancy Ballhagen--23 August 2001:
Hi TF,
As far as I know the Rosalie House puzzle is still being made, I just sold the last one I had a few days ago. If you get in touch with Rose Art Warren, if they have the puzzle they should send you another copy of it, they usually do in the case of puzzles missing pieces [AT PURCHASE, not pieces lost later!-Jim McW]. Hope this helps Nancy

Hello, did Milton Bradly discontinue making the 2 hour puzzle, Hourglass Series? I don't have much space to work on a big area puzzle, so these small puzzles work great with me. "DBP"

[287]from "TS"-26 August 2001:
I have a puzzle that was made by Big Star puzzles. Its called "The Old Mill". It also is numbered. The no. is 1010. I was wondering what year it was made, and if it would be worth anything.
Thank You. "TS"
***************
from Jim McW--27 August 2001:
All the Big Star puzzles were made during the 1930's. Such a puzzle, if complete and in very fine condition, box and all, should fetch at least $5 or $10 in the right venue, perhaps even more. The only picture we have, titled "The Old Mill", is this one, but it's a Tuco:

Perhaps it's similar. Thanks, Jim McW
