Product description

Vintage Japanese wooden sphere puzzle, in vintage "Sharwood's Crystallised Ginger" box (c.1950s-60s)
 
A c.1950s-60s vintage Japanese-made wooden puzzle, comprising twelve pieces which when correctly assembled form a sphere approximately 5.5cm (2.15in) in diameter, complete with the original diagram / solution sheet (printed on thin paper, and marked "MADE IN JAPAN"), and housed in a "Sharwood's Crystallised Ginger" box of similar vintage, which measures approximately 12.5 x 10.2 x 3.4cm (4.9 x 4 x 1.35in).
 
The puzzle itself has some surface wear and marking, but remains complete, whilst the diagram is marked and very much crumpled; the box, however, is unfortunately in such a worn, soiled and damaged state that it has no real collectable value of its own, and is included with the puzzle purely for its historical interest and for its practical purpose as a container.
