Press Release (ePRNews.com) - OKEHAMPTON, England - Mar 29, 2016 - Map Marketing is celebrating Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday with the launch of a commemorative Limited Edition Wooden Jigsaw. The official portrait of Her Majesty forms part of a small range of photographs specially commissioned by Buckingham Palace as part of the events to mark this momentous and historic occasion. Pictured in the grandeur of Buckingham Palace the Queen stands alone, resplendent in a white dress and wearing the blue sash, badge and star of the ancient Order of the Garter.
Hand crafted in Devon using premium wood, this 300 piece puzzle features nine “whimsy” pieces, so called because the original jigsaw puzzle craftsmen back in Victorian times used to create the specially-shaped pieces “on a whim.” Taking the form of royal symbols – including a crown and a sceptre and the Queen’s head itself – these whimsies add to the enjoyment of putting the puzzle together and make it truly unique. Presented in a premium quality “book box”, each heirloom puzzle comes with a certificate to authenticate the puzzle as part of a limited issue.
Her Majesty’s birthday is on April 21st. This will be followed by celebrations to mark the event on May 12th to 15th and a Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral on June 10th and a Birthday Parade on Horse Guards Parade the following day.
Brian O’Donnell, Managing Director of Map Marketing, said “we’ve been delighted with the reaction to this one-of-a-kind jigsaw from our customers around the world. We export thousands of jigsaws every year from our Devon factory and we’ve already had interest in this puzzle from the UK, USA and Australia.”
