The box contains the Jigsaw Puzzle Map of the State of New York, which, when assembled, measures approx. 16 x 12.25 inches, and features a map by J.H. Colton. On the reverse of the assembled puzzle map is a colorful advertising image for Sherwin Williams Paints, which includes a charming central portrait of a young child with a large paintbrush, surrounded by interesting vignettes. The puzzle and box are both in very good condition, with rich, bright and vibrant original color.
