SPEAKING PUZZLE BOX
- MOVEABLE. SPEAKING PUZZLE BOX. No pub. information, circa 1880. This is a Victorian cube puzzle in the original box - but this puzzle is different. Each of the 6 cubes makes a different sound when a string is pulled. The box is very large, measuring 16 1/2" wide x 11 3/4 " deep and 6 " high - in fine condition with metal clasps. The box is covered with printed chromolithographed paper and the top of the box features a brightly colored rooster and other chickens on the farm. Inside the box are six large cubes - each is 5" on a side. Like other cube puzzles of the era, the child can make 6 different scenes. Unlike any other puzzle, EACH OF THE CUBES MAKES A DIFFERENT SOUND when the string on each of the cubes is pulled (one string is missing) Laid-in are the six original large chromolithogrphed scenes that the child uses as guide to assmble the puzzles (the plate on the cover is the sixth scene). This is a glorious puzzle, extraordinarily rare.
