Hand-cut wooden jigsaw puzzles made in France.
Puzzle Michèle Wilson is a traditional hand-cutter since 1975.
From their website: „At the end of the XIX century, electrically powered jigsaws started being used, not too different from the jigsaws used by Puzzle Michele Wilson today. Adult puzzles appeared around 1900 in the United States. They became fashionable with the middle classes in Boston, and later in New York. Very difficult to assemble, cut closely following the different colour lines, these puzzles were also very expensive. Russian aristocracy also greatly favoured this pastime, and brought it to France when fleeing Russia in 1917, under the brand name Vera. Michele Wilson started her business in 1975, after learning the craft working for Vera. She headed the company until 1997. Passionate about puzzles and assisted by a team of puzzle enthusiasts, Sophie Olle-Laprune was next to head and develop the artisan business. In 2013, Julien Vahanian took over the company, to ensure our beautiful puzzles stand the course of time. Today, we are a team of some twenty employees, working between Burgundy and Paris.“
