500 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle

€13,95
Description

This 500 piece puzzle depicts one of the very first railway posters created for the newly formed British Railways in 1948. Illustrated by the artist Terence Cuneo, it features the interior of the busy, one-man signal of Greenwood Signal Box at New Barnet, with an A4 Pacific steam locomotive hurtling towards it.

As with all Gibsons jigsaws, we use 100% recycled puzzle board, FSC paper and work with the best artists from all around the world. The beautifully illustrated pieces are designed to fit perfectly together; in fact, we use the thickest puzzle board on the market. Everyone loves a Gibsons jigsaw, even Her Majesty the Queen has been spotted with one.

We’ve made some positive changes to our processes, so you can be sure you’re getting the same great puzzles and know they are kinder to the environment. Not only does the box have a fresh new look, but we’ve used biodegradable clear labels to secure the lid instead of shrink wrap, reducing our plastic waste. We use vegetable-based inks too. The gloss coating on the box gives extra protection and the puzzle pieces are stored in a plastic bag that can be recycled by most councils.

Because the box is slightly smaller than our previous designs, we need less room to transport our products which reduces our carbon footprint and means you can store your puzzles more easily. We have also popped an artwork poster inside for you to reference whilst you piece together your lovely jigsaw puzzle.

About the Artist

Terence Tenison Cuneo was born in 1907 and was a prolific English painter, noted for his scenes of railways, horses and military actions. He was commissioned to paint many important pieces throughout modern British history. During the War, Cuneo was commissioned by the Foreign Office to produce anti-Nazi drawings and cartoons and an exhibition of his war works was held at the Palaquin Fine Arts gallery in 1942. Eleven years later, he was the official artist for the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. A bronze statue of Terence stood in the main concourse at Waterloo station in London for many years, and now resides at Brompton Barracks in Chatham, Kent.
