Cobble Hill offers a large variety of 1000 piece puzzles. They are high-quality, with a European feel. The puzzle pieces and the puzzle box are both wrapped in linen, which reduces glare, making it easier to see details and it looks great framed! The linen wrap also gives the puzzle more depth and a nice texture. The piece sizes are small in the 1000 piece count, averaging about 1 inch per piece. Our puzzles are all random cut, meaning that each piece has a unique or, "quirky" shape. Some puzzles use a basic ribbon template when cutting the puzzle, so all the pieces look alike and align themselves in nice rows and columns. This can make it difficult to find certain pieces when fixing the puzzle - well, depending on how your visual perception works as it can be the opposite too! That's what is so great about puzzles - the different ways the piece cuts and images challenge us all differently. Customers do love our random cut puzzles and we hope you will too.
