ESCAPE FROM FRAMES

[404]from "RKP"-23 December 2001:
Looking for a jigsaw puzzle I put together with my children every Christmas. Santa workshop scene with reindeer, Christmas tree in background. Large puzzle with lots of pieces! Can't remember manufacturer or number of pieces, probably 1000 or more. Oldest daughter, now 32 asking for it-so puzzle was probably from 1980 or so. Thank you,
"RKP"

Re: Bergen Norway puzzle
Do you know how old this puzzle is, and where I might find it...
Many Thanks, "JC42"

from Jim McW--27 December 2001:
We think you refer to the 750-piece Panorama puzzle, made by MILTON BRADLEYTM. We like this series, and we have two or three in our collection, including:
African Oasis"African Oasis"
Bergen, Norway"Port Town, Bergen, Norway"
By the way, I would guess this series came out in the mid-1990's. We will try to locate these and make them available on the SALE pages.
Thanks, Jim McW

Looking for the value of a Parker Brothers Pastime (Jigsaw) Puzzle -- 205 wooden pieces with interesting patterns of animals, people, houses, etc. "The Loving Herd Winds Slowly o'er the Lea". Patented Aug. 7, 1917 -- Parker Brothers, Inc., Salem, Massachusetts and Flatiron Building, New York, New York. Puzzle is in excellent condition and in original box.
If you could tell me where I can get an idea of what this puzzle's value is, it would be very much appreciated. "LA"

from Jim McW--30 December 2001:
The PARKER BROTHERSTM Pastime Series is a very popular one, and you can learn something about it by doing a search on our site.
Pastimes, in good, complete condition, can bring in the approximate range of $50 - $100 US (or more). We are not familiar with this particular puzzle, but we suspect that the herd is "lowing"!
Thanks, Jim McW

I would like to know if the Eaton puzzles are still made. Would you know where to buy them? "LGMJ"

Hi Jim, Anne [Williams] just answered my question about the Eaton puzzles. She wrote: Eaton stopped making puzzles 5-8 years ago. Their factory was acquired by Nordevco ( http://www.nordevco.com/ ).

Hello there. I really enjoy visiting your website every few months, but then, I have a lot of catching up to do.
Re: My question #152, on this old puzzle I found- I sent pictures of the puzzle and the box a while ago, but in case you didn't get it, here they are again, because I'd really like to know more about it.

Re: #251, the puzzle contest.
The article was in the May 2001 Readers Digest. It was called Playing With the Puzzle People, by John Tierney. It was very interesting and if you haven't read it, I could send it to you. Let me know.
Thanks for keeping up this site so well. It must be a lot of work (but fun).
Happy New Year

from Jim McW--31 December 2001:
Concerning Q&A no. 152, no, we were unable to access the picture you sent before, but we have posted it successfully this time. We have not seen this type of Five Star puzzle, although Anne Williams mentions it in her Jigsaw Puzzles: An Illustrated History and Price Guide. Anyone have any other information?
Concerning the article about the contest, we would certainly be interested in reading it.
We appreciate your kind words. Yes, it is a bit of work, but it is definitely fun.
Thanks, Jim McW

A second look at "THE BOOK" shows us that your puzzle was probably produced by WARRENTM, in the 1940's.

Eggs-Tra-Special
How do I find this puzzle to buy? My last one was destroyed in our move and I would like to find another.

from Nancy Ballhagen--2 January 2002:
Hi CL7,
Seeing as the Eggs-Tra-Special puzzle is no longer being made, you might try internet auction sites and some of the secondary markets, such as antique shops and thrift stores. I used to have it in my shop but have been out of it for several years.

[412]from "VB"-1 January 2002:
I have several nice jig-saw puzzles that I would like to frame but don't know how to go about it. I know you glue them, but how is this done and what kind of glue do you use etc? Also, can it be coated with polyeurethane after it's finished? Thanks. "VB"
***************
from Jim McW--2 January 2002:
Do a search for various advice on this subject. We might add that it's not absolutely necessary to glue the puzzle together, if you can use a vinyl sheet and the framing is tight enough. It may also depend on the cohesiveness of the puzzle itself.
Thanks, Jim McW

We are only aware of one, and that is the very popular one issued by SPRINGBOKTM in 1964. We have one, complete and in good condition, with the original poster, which we haven't had time to post to our SALE pages yet. Write, if you're interested in details.
Thanks, Jim McW

from "JS"-22 February 2002:
Hi Jim,
The couple that started SpringBok puzzles sometimes offered "deluxe" version of their puzzles. These were wooden puzzles, made in England, probably by Hayter. The "Convergence" puzzle was offered in wood. It came in a brown box with only a logo (gold) on the outside and the box was lined with imitation red felt. I haven't seen too many of these, but they do exist.
Cheers,
"JS"
