Today we are offering a great early Milton Bradley Co. wooden puzzle in its original lithographed wooden box. Dating to the turn of the century, it was made in Springfield Massachusetts.
The box offers the following information: “Uniform Scale, Continental Object Lessons. This series consists of Maps of Europe, Asia, Africa, North America, South America. Dissected Maps of Five Continents drawn to uniform scale & cut to natural divisions, each Box contains One Continent. North America.” Puzzle pieces are wooden with lithographed illustrations of animals (great looking whales, polar bears, bears, walrus) and flora on one side and maps on the other.
Box measures 11 1/2″ w x 9 1/2″ d x 3″ h.
Although the puzzle is not compete, it is a rare and unusual collector’s item — will display beautifully with your antique games and toys or perhaps complete another partial puzzle?
