Review of Ravensburger Puzzle entitled Peony Cottage (1000 pieces)

Peony Cottage
The Artist

You would be hard pushed to find illustrative work that is any more colourful and ‘busier’ than that by Howard Robinson. Robinson sets about drawing and painting using his masterful 2D skills and then he digitally enhances those designs. It is the one off final print that he produces which forms the original artwork. Robinson then licenses his designs for commercial use. Wildlife is what he depicts mostly. But we’ve all seen his work in some shape or form, whether it on stationery items, posters, greetings cards, tea towels, mugs, or jigsaws; Robinson’s sharp, boldly bright art is in all of our consciousnesses. Take a look at a range of designs by Howard Robinson on Pinterest we think you will see what we mean!


The Theme

British garden birds and insects; full bloomed flowers and fauna, and flower names in Cursive writing frame a large, red brick and tiled cottage, with glass and leaded windows which sits, centrally, within a country garden scene. Scenes like this one have been popular for many, many years on a jigsaw.

The Product

Rectangular in shape, measures: 69.9 x 49.7 cm approx on completion. The picture is a somewhat traditional puzzle pic, so if traditional is the main appeal you will not be disappointed, especially as the jigsaw is so well made and the pieces being so easy to handle.

Suitable from 12 years upwards – Not suitable for children under 36 months (small pieces).
RRP £11.99
What is in the box?
1000 premium pieces plus Artist’s biography and an additional puzzle picture for further referencing.

The Promoting
