Set Comment

Zag-Zaw line of puzzles was first produced in 1909, all incorporate figurals or whimsies, sold in red or orange boxes with labels on the side or bottom of the box, most without guide pictures. Initially cut non-interlocking but by 1930's became more so. Puzzles have a different cuts so that the same image will come in several versions which means that missing pieces can not be taken from other puzzles with the same image. See also Bob Armstrong's website on old jigsaw puzzles

TUCK'S ZAG-ZAW PICTURE PUZZLE 50-99 pieces
Set Comment

Zag-Zaw line of puzzles was first produced in 1909, most incorporate figurals or whimsies, sold in red, orange, or occasionally green boxes with labels on the side or bottom of the box, most without guide pictures. Initially cut non-interlocking but by 1930's became more so. Puzzles have a different cuts so that the same image will come in several versions which means that missing pieces can not be taken from other puzzles with the same image. The puzzle labels are hand written and come with minor variations in titles and details. See also Bob Armstrong's website on old jigsaw puzzles
