Japanese Vintage Wooden Interlocking Puzzle Egg

Regular price $32.00

I think it is likely a sign of these times, but everywhere I go-physically and virtually--I find myself picking up wooden puzzles. This--heavy!--wooden egg puzzle I believe is Japanese, and I must admit I am wary of taken more than a few pieces apart for fear of not being able to put it back together. It is actually a but of a puzzle to even figure out how to begin; it took me several minutes to find which piece had a little give (push, actually) to allow the taking apart process to begin--and the way the pieces fit together is pretty cool as it reveals itself. But even if not venturing to try to solve it,  it's pretty great just as an object, like an egg itself holding a whole other universe inside! 

4 3/8" long x 3" across. A little surface scratching but looks great.
