VICTROLA. Jigsaw: The Names that Everyone Knows are in the Victor Catalogue. Victor Talking Machine Co. 1905.
210mm diameter circular jigsaw, mounted in a cloth covered folder. With remains of paper packing envelope mounted opposite.
This promotional jigsaw features the thoroughbreds of the 1905 Victor Records stable: Caruso, Melba, McCormack, Paderewski, Rachmaninoff, Kreisler, Heifetz, Tetrazzine and Tito Schiba amongst others.
The packing envelope (which is rather tattered) exhorts, "Try for a speed record. You and your family will have lots of fun with the contents of this envelope. You may be able to solve the problem and learn its secret, but how quickly can you do it? Faster than any one else?"
