Lots of us enjoy a good wander around an antiques centre or vintage emporium, and it seems like we’re not alone! Those Crazy Cats enjoy it too, especially when they can lounge on furniture, investigate open drawers, creep inside suitcases and generally check everything out. This wonderfully detailed scene is filled with vintage objects large and small, all of which are just waiting to be rediscovered and enjoyed. This puzzle is No 8 in Linda Jane Smith's Crazy Cats Vintage range. 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 50 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.
A note about this image from Birmingham-based artist Linda Jane Smith - Hunting for 'old stuff' is like treasure hunting for me! I love peeling paint, and old leather suitcases covered in travel labels. They've 'had a life'. Car boot sales, Antique shops, and Jumble sales are the places to go; worn fabric is so beautiful. Bundles of sepia photographs from an attic, or an enamel sign for 'Bird's Custard'! I like to capture the look of age in an object when I paint; after all, a spot of rust never hurt anyone!
