My Next Bookshelf?

I’d like to have this ‘Bookshelf

Bookshelf jigsaw

 

It’s a jigsaw puzzle from Wentworth Wooden Jigsaws, who make beautiful wooden jigsaws including “whimsy” pieces.  Whimsies are specially shaped pieces cut into puzzles “on a whim” by Victorian hand cutters and Wentworth is one of the only companies still producing these unique puzzles. Each piece is a different shape and selected pieces are cut in shapes that may reflect the image. Also the corner pieces aren’t the obvious corner shapes you get in other puzzles and there are straight edged pieces that fit in the middle!

These pieces are from the jigsaw of  The Mall, London from a painting by John Sutton. Here is the completed jigsaw.
