ESCAPE FROM FRAMES

[414]from "YJ"-3 January 2002:
I have an old John Wayne puzzle and would like to know the value. It is #7336, he is very young, wearing jeans and a red shirt. I do have all the pieces and parts of the puzzle are in the shape of guns. The copyright is MCMLI.
Thank you in advance for any assistance you can offer.

from Jim McW--4 January 2002:
It's impossible to say, without seeing the puzzle, of course, but it sounds like a great, old puzzle, in any case. We can say that the 1951 date indicates that it could be tied to his "B" western films. He actually had a few comic books published, in the vein of Lash LaRue and Gene Autry, etc. They appear to be among the most valuable of western comics of that era. If so, such a puzzle might be worth quite a bit more in that market than in the collectible puzzle market. Can we see a picture or two?!
Thanks, Jim McW

Great Moments in American History" Jigsaw Puzzles
I have recently come upon all 12 unopened canisters of jigsaw puzzles that my father was collecting. I am interested in finding out how much these puzzles are currently worth, or if they have any collector's value. All of the puzzles in the set are unopened and in very good condition.
Sincerely,
"BNMN"

from Jim McW--6 January 2002:
A complete set, unopened, in mint condition, should command a premium, if you can find the right venue.
See our FAQ page for a brief discussion of puzzle values.

[419]from "CML"-6 January 2002:
I am in search of a puzzle which pictures Port Alsworth, Alaska. It inspired a friend of ours to move to this beautiful town and would love to present it to her. I believe it was produced by Milton Bradley in 1992, and that it is now out of print. Is anyone familiar with it? Do you know where I can acquire a copy?

Hello!
I am trying to find the 1988 MB puzzle of "Cocoa Break at Copperfield's" to buy. I thought it was Cocoa Break at Butterfield's, but it's the same picture as you have displayed; brown house, snowman, sleds, etc. I've tried internet auction sites, but haven't seen it listed so far. If you think you might know where I could purchase this puzzle, complete and in good condition, please contact me. Thank you!
Sincerely,
"LA"

We have tried to post [see our WYSOCKI page] most of the information that we have received about the many WYSOCKITM jigsaw puzzles which have been produced by various companies, but we have not completed it, yet.
According to Ed Tabor, puzzle no. 4679-18, issued 1997, was from a painting entitled "Root Beer Break at the Butterfield's". The puzzle was entitled, "Nantucket Flyers" and had 1000 pieces. We believe the title Ed gave us for no. 4678-8 was "Cocoa Break At the Copperfield's". It had 500 pieces and was issued 1988.
Thanks, Jim McW

from "LA"-19 January 2002:
Dear Jim,
Thanks for contacting me....
I see now that there's a print of this particular Wysocki picture on an internet auction called "Hot Chocolate Break", so who knows what the real title is???
Anyway, I really appreciate your efforts,
Sincerely,
"LA"

[422]from "RTAV"-7 January 2002:
My sister and I put such a puzzle together sometime between 1956 and 1959. There were several Monet paintings of this same subject; as I recall, it was one with red houses on the bank on the left, and a single sailboat with a large sail dominating the center of the scene. The box (as I remember) was light green. Is your puzzle very close to this description?

Mr. McWhorter,
Thanks again for your quick response regarding my Whitman puzzle depicting an alleged photo of Cripple Creek.
As an employee of the local museum and an area historian, I have poured over photographs hoping to find a photo showing the referenced building. So far I have arrived at nothing. In actuality, the building strongly resembles one in the ghost town of Ashcroft near Aspen, except the bottom floor windows do not appear to match. The landscape is also similar, but also does not quite match.
I am attaching a photo of the puzzle box.
Cripple Creek, Colorado"Cripple Creek, Colorado", WHITMAN GUILDTM Thank you for your offer to post it on the internet.
Happy 2002,

Does anyone recognize this location or scene, or have any information about it?
Any of you old-timers out there!?

Hopefully you can be of some assistance to me. I got Michelangelo's statue of David 3D puzzle for Christmas, but unfortunately there are no english instructions or phone numbers or e-mail addresses that I can contact to request them. I have exhausted all avenues and would be grateful if you could help.
Thanking you in advance.
Kind Regards
"NB"

from Jim McW--9 January 2002:
We have received numerous requests such as yours, but we have been unable to get anyone to send us a copy of the instructions, in ANY language, so that we can get them translated. One person in Europe has promised to do so. If you or anyone else wants to send a copy, also, it might insure that we have a chance to provide the translation.
Thanks, Jim McW

from Jim McW--6 January 2002:
We received your fascinating information on "Polperro Harbour", and we have posted it to the Wooden Puzzles page, with that puzzle, which we have in our collection, unfortunately without the box, and with two replacement pieces. In spite of this, it was one of the most memorable of the many puzzles we have assembled.

Hello. I was just wondering how you get the pictures for all of the puzzels you make. Do people sell you the pictures that they take, or do you have a photographer of your own to take the pictures.
Thanks,

We simply provide a website for enjoying jigsaw puzzles, especially old puzzles. We take all our own pictures of puzzles from our own collection, but we receive many, many pictures from puzzle enthusiasts around the world. We are very grateful for these, since we could not afford to pay for them, and they allow us to provide better service to the puzzling community.
Thanks, Jim McW

Look on the on-line jigsaw puzzle stores for which we have links on our LINKS PAGE. I believe several of them have puzzle platforms of one kind or another. Also, write to them for ideas.
