Magnificant Vintage Par Puzzle - Climax - Bullfighter 1400 Pc. - C Ruano Llopis:
Hello there. Here at last is another puzzle from the collection of my friend. This one will not disappoint. The reason I haven't put any others on lately is because this puzzle took me over three weeks to finish, and I am GOOD at puzzles. HA. I thought I was! The box says PAR time - 13 hours, 25 minutes. It was said that whatever was stated on the box is how long it took John Henriques to assemble the puzzle he just cut. I think he must have pretty much been the only one who COULD. That being said, This is one MAGNIFICANT puzzle. If you were ever thinking about owning a PAR, why not own one of the best. This is a 1425 piece puzzle called CLIMAX - a very intriguing title when you have no idea what the picture will be. In fact, I had 3/4 of the puzzle put together and STILL couldn't figure it out. And the edges drove me insane! Finally I did a little digging on the internet for the artist - C Ruano Llopis, and a whole slew of 1940's bullfighting / matador pictures came up. This is actually a 1944 Mexico Travel Poster. This puzzle is perfect. The 60 Figural pieces were still neatly in the bottom of the box, under tissue paper. If it was ever put together before, it couldn't have been more than one or two times. I am NOT a PAR expert, so I can only estimate the date as either 1950's or 1960's. The only flaw I see at all is the slight staining on the front box label. This giant of a puzzle measures just over 25" x 25" so you need a lot of room where you can leave it set up and come back to it often. It is also signed in gold ink with their signature twin seahorses. I can't say enough good things about this awesome puzzle. You will love it and it will drive you crazy! At least you have the benefit of knowing what it is supposed to be. I had no idea!
