Ecru Puzzles - Jean Metzinger Peacock Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle

$ 60.00


New August 2022! This 201 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle is of a 1906 painting by post-impressionist Jean Metzinger in a pointillist style. 

Our puzzle design was done by Chandler Millwood and is pretty unique and harder than our average puzzle (= kind-of-hard). There is an irregular edge, it has a lot of "peacock eye" pieces like on peacock feathers, and there are a handful of fun whimsies along the lines of "peacock-ing", aka "strutting your stuff." NOTE: The irregular edge is not shown in the image on the box!

Previously sold as Mystery Puzzle #24 (without the picture on the box), which is how it was used for the 2022 Puzzle Parley Speed Puzzling Contest. The fastest team of three world-class speed puzzlers working together finished it in 26 minutes and 51 seconds. The second-place team of three took 29 minutes and 52 seconds. The third-place team took 33 minutes and 8 seconds. 

Our Ecru Puzzles line is characterized by a closer cut and a matte finish to reduce glare. Like all our puzzles, made of 1/4" thick laser-cut wood and made in the USA. Packaged in our standard unfinished pine wood box. 

Made in the USA (specifically, in Port Townsend WA).

Review: Harder than anticipated for a 200 piece puzzle, but not overwhelmingly so. Not being a frequent Ecru-puzzle aficionado, it took a moment or two to devise a strategy but then it was mostly straight-forward. Generally enjoyable until I got to the "end" with about a dozen interchangeable pieces which required more focus upon the colors than anything else. Nice for a day or evening.

Review: Extremely difficult. Not undertaken.

Review: Definitely more challenging that most puzzles of this size, as there were a lot of pieces of the same or similar shape that required careful attention to the color/pattern. The pieces don't fit together as snugly as some other brands (e.g., Liberty), which means it wasn't my absolute favorite, but a pretty puzzle, and the irregular edge added an extra challenge. Its assembled size is pretty small, so definitely a good choice if you have limited space and want a challenge in a puzzle that can be done in a small space.

Review: A bit devilish in that many pieces are oval-shaped and some are interchangeable. You have to look carefully at the design to get a match. Small puzzle with pretty image and interesting edges.

Review: Do you enjoy pulling your hair out? Then this puzzle is for you! We typically stay away from super challenging ones as we puzzle to relax but this image was so colorful we had to have it. Definitely more challenging than most artifacts we have worked. The unique cut makes it a bit harder also. Try this one when you have lots of patience!
