Today's vintage thingy is a jigsaw puzzle that I was lucky enough to find at the op-shop. Alas it's missing one piece, and the picture printed on the pieces is crappy quality compared to the picture on the cover. But isn't it delightful? Made by "Holdson", the back lists other products they make, such as "Portfolio of Pictures, Fairy Folk at Work, Colour Magic Painting Book, and School Pencils cases and Picture Painting Inks". A Googling yielded no joy about the company, but I'm guessing this is English, circa 1930's-40's?
