A very rare and unique item this is a wooden puzzle that advertises "Hold Fast Plug Cut" tobacco. The image was printed on paper by Calvert Litho of Detroit Michigan. They were in business from 1863 to 1967. This was laminated onto what appears to be Maple wood and made into this puzzle. Hold Fast Tobacco produced many pieces of advertising in the late 1800's. This piece appears to date from that time period.
The puzzle is in the original wood frame and it appears that two pieces in the upper left corner might have been restored, otherwise it is in original amazing condition.
The puzzle is 10 3/4" wide x 19 1/2" long. With the frame it is 11 3/4" wide x 20 1/2" long. Amazing condition.
Just don't do what I did and try to turn it over, see last photo, oops.
