Waddingtons published this very rare and delightful puzzle in 1991. The title is The Ball on Shipboard, by the artist James Tissot. The original painting is held in the Tate Gallery, London.
Tissot became famous as a genre painter of fashionably dressed women shown in various scenes of everyday life.
The puzzle is NEW, with its original FACTORY SEAL. There is a tear to the seal on the front as you can see in the photographs.
There is a similar 2000 pieces version by Jumbo. Educa also published a similar 2000 pieces edition in 1998 with the title The Ball Aboard Ship.
