TUCK'S "Message" ZAG-ZAW PICTURE PUZZLE

In Anne Williams' collection is a nice 77 piece 7.5" x 5.5" puzzle with the message cut out as 'figure pieces'. The label at the bottom of the box reeds: "Sweet blossoms of spring" (Dear Mother). So the customer would know name of the picture as well as the message when he bought the puzzle. Because of the cutting pattern with 'earlets and figures', and the layout of the box, we would say that the puzzle is produced in the 1935-40 period.
