This is a vintage wooden block picture puzzle set with barnyard type scenes illustrated on each side of the cubes. There are only four remaining paper pictures included to act as aides in putting the puzzles together. A partial picture is glued to each surface of the 12 blocks. It would seem that there should be six different scenes but I was only able to make up four of them; bunny rabbits, puppies, mallard ducks with ducklings and sheep (no paper guide for the sheep). I was not able to make the roosters which has a paper sheet and is also on the cover of the box and there is apparently one with a cat but I couldn't figure it out....guess I needed a child to help me out! The box is paper cover wood sides and cardboard top and bottom with a paper hinge along the back. Along the bottom edge of the picture that is applied to the lid it reads; Made in Westgermany (one word) along with a number 212T and a logo with Kubus W - F. I would assume these to be from the late 1940's or early 50's.
The box measures about 4 1/2" by 5 1/2" by 1 3/8" and is in fairly good condition with typical paper edge wear. The "hinge" is weak but in tact. Each block measures about 1 1/16" square and a complete puzzle size is about 3 1/4" by 4 3/8". The paper on the cube faces is fairly good with bright colors. There is wear to the edges where it has come unglued, crazing and bubbles on some sides. The picture is torn half off of one side of one cube.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
