Dab Hand says: This Collector’s Wooden Jigsaw shows a depiction of the Mary Rose from The Anthony Roll, which is the only known fully illustrated inventory of ships of the English navy in the Tudor period. The Mary Rose sank in 1545 and was successfully salvaged in 1982. The jigsaw has an intricate cut, meaning border pieces are not immediately obvious. The puzzle includes the famous Wentworth whimsies, which are shaped pieces themed to match the puzzle, including an anchor, ship’s wheel and a seahorse. The pieces – some of which are extremely small – come in a cloth bag.
