MGC's Custom Made Wooden Jigsaw Puzzles

The Following are things that I am always looking for!

Formula 1 Racing

I am an avid Formula 1 Racing Fan, and already have plans to attend the 2006 races at... Montreal Canada and Manza Italy. (not via B a r t e r)

I would be willing to trade custom made jigsaw puzzles, in return for accommodations at your home or villa. Your accommodations should provide the following.

- 2 beds (same room OK, but 2 rooms preferred)
- 1 bathroom
- Simple breakfast provided (Coffee, Juice, Eggs and toast), if not available at a nearby cafe.
- Location should be near venue or city of venue, so that we have access to transportation via Taxi, Train or Bus in order to carry on with our race activities while we are visiting.

In 2007 or 2008, I would be interested in visiting and experiencing any one or two of the following race venues. ( Actual Dates not set until November the year prior)

Australian Grand Prix
San Marino Grand Prix
European Grand Prix
Spanish Grand Prix
Monaco Grand Prix

British Grand Prix
French Grand Prix
German Grand Prix

Italian Grand Prix
Chinese Grand Prix
Japanese Grand Prix
Brazilian Grand Prix

If you have an interest in my custom made wooden jigsaw puzzles, and are willing to trade sharing your home or villa with two avid Formula 1 fans, please contact me, so that we can work out the details.

WOODEN Jigsaw Puzzles

My family and I are Collectors of Antique Jigsaw Puzzles dated back to the 1800's. See my "COLLECTING PUZZLES" section of this web site for more details.

Puzzles of PRIMARY Interest are PAR Puzzles, Pastime Puzzles, Madmar Puzzles, Falls Puzzles, Artino Puzzles, Victory Artistic Puzzles.

We Also collect puzzles from Contemporary (modern) puzzle makers such as: Stave Puzzles, Elms Puzzles as well as a few others.

Puzzles that are less desireable yet we would still be interested are:
J.K. Strauss Puzzles, Victory Gold Box, Penelope, FAO Schwartz Puzzles... to name a few of the most popular lower end puzzles.

We do NOT Collect CARDBOARD puzzles at all.

Please provide ALL of the following information in your correspondence, or have it ready BEFORE you call. If you have more than one puzzle, please prepare this information for every puzzle. Thank you.

1) Puzzle maker's name ( Company name or Person )
2) Puzzle title from puzzle box
3) Artist name and actual print title - ( If known... many times it is not available.)
4) Year that the puzzle was cut. ( This should be notated on the Box, Not from the image! -- Image dates are almost always only the Artist's Copyright date. )
5) Number of pieces in the Puzzle
6) Condition of the puzzle - ( Paper missing, tears, stains, broken nubs, chewed by dog, silverfish damage, foxing, missing pieces... etc.)
7) Condition of the puzzle box ( Stains, rips, split corners, taped, missing lids, chewed by cat, pen markings...etc. )
8) Any additional markings or items of interest that you think I should know in determining my interest in your puzzles. ( Name or number of puzzle cutter, Inspector, polished by ... etc. )


I am always looking for NEW artists to add to my online art gallery. Ideal images should be colorful and fairly busy, and thus ideal for puzzle making.

Images should be available in either Lithographic form or in Digital form. LIMITED EDITION prints are preferred.

Topics of primary interest are:

  • Civil / Revolutionary war scenes
    • ( Battles, Famous people, Historical Landmarks)
  • Americana
  • Old Masters styles
  • Victorian Women and Children
  • Native American Art
  • American Classic scenes
  • Realistic PET Animals
    • (Cats, Dogs, Horses, Birds, etc.)
  • African American Art
  • Asian Art
  • Realism
  • Religion
  • Wildlife (Realistic)
  • OTHER...
    • Colorful, vivid scenes that capture and entertain the minds eye!

If you have art (or know an artist that does) that does not fit in my descriptions above, yet you feel strongly that it would be conducive to great puzzles, please DO contact me, and send me sample tear sheets to review. (Via web site link or color copies.)

DO NOT e-mail images to me! I will be happy to visit your web site, but I do NOT want images sent to me via e-mail. I do not have time to download large image files.
