A pair of charming vintage wooden tray jigsaws made by W. R. Kelly
A pair of very charming tray style wooden jigsaw puzzles made by W.R. Kelly of Stonham Aspal, Suffolk. Each is a simplified and colourful depiction, one of a lorry and the other a steam ship, with six and five pieces respectively. Intended for the younger child, certainly. They look great on display and that’s what would be envisaged their use now. Both have signs of age and wear, with the boat jigsaw having also some minor damage as well (see the photos for details). The lorry puzzle has a sticker on the reverse whilst the ship has a somewhat smudged stamp to its rear side.
Each puzzle measures approximately 7 inches (18cm) square.
