Ariel Puzzle


Named after the high wires that circus performers walk along.

This puzzle is one of the many puzzles described by Professor Hoffmann in his 1893 book. These two examples (boxwood on left and ebony and ivory below) were possibly manufactured by John Jaques and Co.

The object of these puzzles is to remove the ring. Sometimes there is a bead in place of the ring.
