This jigsaw puzzle was produced by the games manufacturer, Waddingtons of Leeds. Entitled Signing of Magna Charta, the puzzle contained 439 pieces and sold for 1 shilling 3 pence. The box was designed in the shape of a book, and its legend advised that, ‘All the pieces are fully interlocking and when put in position, stay in position, which is most helpful in Jig-Saw Puzzle making’. In common with traditional representations of the events at Runnymede, King John is portrayed in the puzzle signing the document before him, quill pen in hand; a seal press sits on a small table to his left. Originally established as a printing business, Waddingtons entered game production in 1922, being most famous for publishing Cluedo and Monopoly. The company was taken over by Hasbro in 1994.
