Ecru Puzzles - Jean Metzinger Peacock Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle

$ 60.00


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: The image on the box is rectangular but there is not a straight edged piece to be seen. The way it fits together is beautifully done and was a lot of fun to assemble!

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.
